General overview

The objectives of the EU financed NanoMag project are to standardize, improve and redefine analyzing methods of magnetic nanoparticles. Using improved manufacturing technologies, synthesized magnetic nanoparticles with specific properties will be analyzed with a multitude of characterization techniques. Bringing the results together will give a self-consistent picture which describes how structural and magnetic properties are interrelated.

Strategic objectives

  • Identify analysis and characterization methods that can be used to standardize measurements of magnetic nanoparticles
  • Provide valuable tools in the manufacturing process of magnetic nanoparticles and when comparing results from different labs
  • Promote the standardization techniques for both research and industrial processes
  • Provide new metrological standards for magnetic nanoparticles

Technical objectives

  • Correlate magnetic and structural properties of magnetic nanoparticles
  • Develop new analysis methods and models for magnetic nanoparticles
  • Improve traceability of the life time of magnetic nanoparticle systems from synthesis stage to specific applications
