Studies from University of Zaragoza Further Understanding of Nanoparticles (Tuning Deposition of Magnetic Metallic Nanoparticles from Periodic Pattern to Thin Film Entrainment by Dip Coating Method)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Data detailed on Nanoparticles have been presented. According to news reporting out of Zaragoza, Spain, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "In this work, we report on the self-assembly of bimetallic CoFe carbide magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) stabilized by a mixture of long chain surfactants."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Zaragoza, "A dedicated setup, coupling dip coating and sputtering chamber, enables control of the self-assembly of MNPs from regular stripe to continuous thin films under inert atmosphere. The effects of experimental parameters, MNP concentration, withdrawal speed, amount, and nature of surfactants, as well as the surface state of the substrates are discussed."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Magnetic measurements revealed that the assembled particles were not oxidized, confirming the high potentiality of our approach for the controlled deposition of highly sensitive MNPs."
