Nanoparticle Assembly

The directed assembly of nanoparticles towards specific locations is an interesting reasearch area. Using electrostatic forces it is possible to locate charged particles with a resolution far below one micron. In principal it is possible to do the attachment from a gas-phase, a fluid or a powder. We focus on the attachment out of the fluid phase by using water-alcohol or water- in –oil emulsions.
