Summary:

Nanoparticle manufacturing remains limited by conventional methods of synthesizing, purifying, and characterizing nanoparticles dispersed in liquids. In this presentation, I will describe ongoing efforts at NIST to solve related problems by developing microfabricated fluidic devices for the continuous flow directed assembly of soft nanoparticles, and nanofabricated fluidic devices for the high throughput separation and measurement of single nanoparticles. Such microfluidic and nanofluidic devices can be scaled, integrated, and mass produced for the sustainable manufacturing of nanoparticles.
