Measurement & Modelling

In order to harness the utility of rapid gas-phase synthesis, we need to finely control conditions within the reacting gas. Small differences in local species concentrations and temperature sensitively determine size and shape of the resulting nanomaterial.

We can quantify and understand such relationships through correlating ex situ measurements of material morphology along with in situ measurement of the gas-phase parameters. Alternatively, for typical flames a modelling approach can also be employed to infer such parameters with sufficient accuracy… read more ยป
