Designing Hybrid Nanoparticles

Maria Benelmekki


In the last few years, several "bottom-up" and "top-down" synthesis routes have been developed to produce tailored hybrid nanoparticles (HNPs). This book provides a new insight into one of the most promising "bottom-up" techniques, based on a practical magnetron-sputtering inert-gas-condensation method. A modified magnetron-sputtering-based inert-gas-condensation (MS-IGC) system is presented, and its performances under different conditions are evaluated.

About Editors

Maria Benelmekki (Senior Staff Scientist at OIST-Graduate University, Japan). After completing a PhD in experimental solid state physics (1997) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB-Spain) and postdoctoral work at Ecole National Supérieure d'Art et Métier (ENSAM-France), she joined industrial research as Project Manager, working in R&D international projects related to a broad range of nanomaterials and their application in food packaging and automotive industries. Eight years later, she joined the Centre of Physics of Minho University (Portugal) where she built up a research topic in the area of nanoparticles and hybrid nanomaterials. She extended her research to fundamental aspects of materials surfaces and interfaces and their performance for biomagnetic separation.
