The Particular GmbH is a new spin-off firm from the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), which was started by two LZH scientists. Particular uses a new laser process for the production of highly sterile nanoparticles made of almost any material.
There is a high demand for nanoparticles for research purposes such as medical technology, and Particular can use the new process to significantly reduce costs for these high-tech particles. Laser-generated nanoparticles are not only interesting for medical technology, but also for other high-quality products.
Nanoparticles are extremely small material particles, invisible to the human eye, but which can be used to improve the characteristics of many products, such as the biological compatibility of implants, protection against infection for medical catheters, or for UV light absorption, or the scratch resistance of sunglasses. Usually, nanoparticles are manufactured chemically, but Particular uses a physical process in which a laser beam removes tiny particles in a liquid surrounding, such as gold particles or other materials.
"With laser technology, new and innovative uses of nanoparticles are possible," says Niko Bärsch, CEO of Particular. "We can make implants more compatible, or we can make molecules visible using gold nanoparticles, for example for diagnosing cancer."
Apart from the good cooperation between Particular and the LZH, Bärsch emphasizes the support of the promotional program "EXIST-Research Transfer", through which Particular receives funding from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology during the start-up phase, up to the end of 2011.
The internet site http://particular.eu/ offers a closer look at the technology and the products of Particular.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
