Laboratory and Fabrication
We have a fully equipped and permitted chemical laboratory with synthesis and chemical characterization equipment and an optical/engineering laboratory for optical testing of materials and sensor design and testing. Our scientists can design and synthesize novel compounds and materials from the milligram to the multi-kilogram range. For larger quantities, we will select and work with a manufacturer to produce, qualify, and deliver the materials you need at the quality you demand.
