Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) material scientists are collaborating with physical chemistry scientists utilizing single particle mass spectrometer (SPLAT II) to push the frontiers of quantitative imaging of nanoparticles used in energy applications as well as those found in environment, like atmospheric aerosols. This work is in developing newer and more powerful characterization techniques that can image and quantify the dimension, density and shape of nanoparticles, which exist in nature as well as artificially synthesized for a variety of applications in this era of nanotechnology. The image shows the scanning electron microscope image of an array of gold nanorods used as standards to calibrate the SPLAT II system in EMSL.
