A novel, scalable method is presented for depositing ultra-thin micro/nano-coatings to 20 nm, or particles < 2m/min. A lab bench process tool based on this technique was built and is shown, applied to the challenge [...]
NanoSpray Combustion Processing technology is a flame based open atmosphere process for nanostructured thin film manufacturing through the Combustion Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD) mode. The main advantage of NanoSpraySM CCVD technique includes using inexpensive and [...]
For the past several decades, gas-phase combustion processing has been used to produce nanomaterials like titanium dioxide and carbon-black in tonnage. These processes are restricted to the production of simple, single-element or single-metal compositions, primarily [...]
We present a new method developed in our group, Laser Spinning, for the production of very long amorphous ceramic nanofibers with lengths up to several centimeters. This technique allows large quantities of nanofibers to be [...]
Some bacteria such as Gluconacetobacter synthesize cellulose nanofibrills (BC) through the polymerization of glucose and subsequent extrusion outside the cell. In static conditions, the bacteria produce a three-dimensional network, a type of pellicule, which can [...]

Large area roll-to-roll manufacturing on flexible substrates is ubiquitous for applications such as paper and plastic processing. It combines the benefits of high speed and inexpensive substrates to deliver a commodity product at low cost. [...]
Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) on particles can provide unique opportunities to control surface chemistry or create new composite materials. These techniques can create a wide variety of structures to suit many different commercial applications from [...]
This abstract presents a novel flexible manufacturing approach using modular robotic manipulators that can be quickly and easily configured for on-demand, on-site prototyping or pilot production. The modular and reconfigurable manufacturing cell or MRMC implements [...]
