Magnesium nanoparticles

Magnesium is strong and light in its pure form. Hence it can be used for several high volume manufacturing applications including in aerospace and automobile components. It tarnishes slightly when exposed to air and reacts with water at room temperature.

Magnesium nanoparticles are spherical black high surface area particles typically 20-60 nm in size with specific surface area ranging from 30 to 70 m2/g. These nanoparticles are also available in ultra high purity, high purity, coated and dispersed forms.

    Future display technologies such as virtual and augmented reality require higher pixel resolutions and optical contrast. However, the potential of state-of-the-art displays is limited by the individual pixel size to achieve necessary resolution. Researchers at the University of Stuttgart have now succeeded to observe switching processes at previously unattained nanometer resolution. It opens the door towards new and innovative ultra-high-resolution displays of the future. The journal Science Advances reports their groundbreaking work in its issue of May 08, 2020.
