ALPhANOV has developed expertise in the production of nanoparticles in liquid solution by laser ablation which is a simple, clean and adaptable technique: customers and partners can thus have nanoparticle solutions with a wide choice of liquids and materials.
Two different methods are employed at ALPhANOV for nanoparticle colloids production: the laser ablation method and the laser fragmentation method: a micrometric particle is reduced to nanometric dimension after the interaction with the laser beam. This way it makes it possible to produce nanoparticles in liquid solution while avoiding the limitations of the traditional techniques which often use chemical methods. It is simple to implement and it is perfect for prototyping nanoparticles of complex materials.
The nanoparticles proposed by ALPhANOV, virgin of any contaminant, can thus be used in many fields:
