NANOSTINE Engineering new nanoparticles and clusters is our commitment

Why Are We Different?

Nanostine is a spin-off of the CSIC devoted to research, development & commercialization of high added value nanoparticles and nanostructured coatings. The fabricated nanoparticles are completely free of ligands on their surface, which makes them especially suitable for applications in different fields, such as the aerospace sector, energy and nanomedicine.



Clusters and nanoparticles can be obtained in a highly crystalline order (depending on the chemical composition) and free of ligands.



Clusters and nanoparticles are fabricated in ultra high vacuum which guarantees the purity.



Clusters from few atoms to nanoparticles of few nm to 30 nm are produced. The size distribution is narrow and well controlled.



All elements that can be magnetron sputtered can be used providing a wide choice of chemical compositions.



Manufacturing of nanoparticles with structures that are not accessible by other routes.


Green Tech

Does not generate toxic byproducts (only the Argon that is released into the atmosphere).

The Technology

Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) technique for the fabrication of nanoparticles in gas-phase (bottom-up).

  • Atoms are ejected using a magnetron gun.
  • The controlled aggregation of the atoms allows the growth of the nanoparticles.
  • The nanoparticles are extracted in the form of a beam.
  • UHV Purity control.
  • Precise control of the composition, size (1-30 nm) & size distribution.
  • Gas-phase, ligand-free, solvent free (100 % of surface available).
  • Absence of toxic by-products, green technology.
