Material research

As the most prevalent form of nanomaterials used in consumer products, nanoparticles have an enormous range of potential and actual applications in almost every market sector. The inclusion of nanoparticles in a solid or liquid medium can substantially change its mechanical properties, such as elasticity, plasticity, viscosity, compressibility. Being smaller than the wavelengths of visible light, nanoparticles can be dispersed in transparent media without affecting its transparency at those wavelengths. This property is exploited in many applications, such as photocatalysis.
