Nanocoating Applications

Our nanocoatings are of added value for numerous applications in the field of micro- and nanotechnology. A brief selection is given below:

  • Nanowires


    Nanowire based sensors have gained considerable interest as a general platform for ultrasensitive label-free electrical detection of biological and chemical species. These nanowire field effect transistor devices (NW-FETs) exhibit enhanced sensitivity compared to planar sensor platforms, due to the beneficial surface-t… » view application
  • Microfluidics


    Microfluidics deals with minute volumes of fluid in a network of micrometer-scale channels and allows miniaturisation and integration of precious complex chemical, biological and physical processes. Due to the micro-scale dimensions and the resulting high surface-area-to-volume ratio microfluidic systems offer numerous… » view application
  • Optofluidic Biosensors

    Optofluidic Biosensors

    Optofluidic sensor devices have emerged as a highly promising (bio)chemical and label-free sensing technology with potential application in fields like biomedical research, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and water, food and environmental monitoring. As (bio)molecular binding events alter the refractive index contrast and… » view application
  • AFM tips

    AFM tips

    Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is one of the most powerful techniques for nanoscale characterization of materials surfaces. AFM makes use of a cantilever with a sharp tip (probe) at the end. When brought in close proximity of a surface, the cantilever bends in response to van der Waals interactions between the tip and t… » view application
  • Microsieves


    Microsieves are microfiltration membranes with well-defined pores with, depending on the application, pore sizes in the range of 0.1 to 20 µm. A microsieve is composed of a rigid silicon support with on top a thin silicon nitride membrane (0.5 to 5 µm). Due to the high pore density, uniform pore size d… » view application
