The advantages of spark discharge generation for manufacturing of nanoparticles with tailored properties

Messing, Maria E. LU (2016) In Journal of Green Engineering 5(3-4). p.83-96
Abstract

The number of nanoparticle-based products on the market is expected to increase considerably during the coming decades. For this to happen a solid supply of high-quality nanoparticles is needed. For metal nanoparticles no large-scale manufacturing method exists today but production using spark discharge generation is believed to be one of the most suitable candidates. Spark discharge generation offers several advantages over other methods and the first steps towards scaling up have already been taken. In this paper the spark discharge generator concept is presented and its advantages are discussed. Examples of nanoparticle materials and applications for the as-generated particles are reviewed.
