Zinc Sulfide Nano-Powders
Lorad scientists have developed a new method for the synthesis of zinc sulfide powders. This new process can generate zinc sulfide powders on a continuous basis. Initial materials in the 100nm -150nm range are available in kg quantities.
Shown below, (Fig.1) is a typical SEM image of a Zinc Sulfide powder.

Fig.2., shows a typical x-ray diffraction trace of these zinc sulfide nano-powders. The zinc sulfide nano-powders are indexed as the cubic , sphalerite crystal structure. Line broadening measurements indicate a crystallite size of 10-20nm.
