Applications in Material Science

Thin solid films


Solar cells, displays, food packaging, anticorrosive, antimicrobial, antireflective functional coatings - MP-SPR helps to reduce the coating thickness while maintaining the functionality. MP-SPR allows measurement of interactions as well as thickness and complex refractive index of ultrathin metal coatings from 3Å to 100 nm and more...

MS_Graphene_extra.png MP-SPR is an ideal tool for development of graphene coatings for biosensing, gas sensing, composites, displays and other applications. MP-SPR measures thickness of graphene from single monolayer and also its changes and interactions with molecules in real-time. 


MP-SPR measures thickness of ultrathin films of metals, oxides and ceramics up to 100 nm. It can be applied to a wider range of applications from semiconductors to biological implant coatings. Refractive index, moisture interaction and antifouling can be characterized too.

Soft materials


MP-SPR can measures interactions to hydrogels from ultrathin films up to 5 µm, which makes it the most sensitive label-free technique for biomaterial interaction studies and layer characterization. For example measurement of protein adsorption to polymer without water artefacts and real-time polymer brush collapse.


Green plastics, food additives, drug delivery, implants, composites, paints, organic solar cells, printed electronics, biosensors,... Nanocellulose  can be used in different applications by selecting a favourable characteristics of the material. MP-SPR is used by researchers around the world to develop nanocellulose for different applications.


MP-SPR can be combined with electrochemistry to measure interactions and conformation changes under different electric potential, pH and temperature. MP-SPR can be also used to develop electrochemical biosensors or to characterize electrically-induced reactions such as electropolymerization or corrosion.



From nanoparticle-based competitive assays through electrochemical sensors to direct assays, MP-SPR shows all the steps of your assay may you work with glass, polymer, silica or metal surfaces!

LS_Gas_sensor_development_2.png MP-SPR works also with gas samples, and is exremely sensitive for gas detection. Even hydrogen with molecular weight of 2 daltons can be measured. Applications for example in gas storage, detection and swelling of films due to organic vapors. 
 LS_Nanoparticles_extra.png Whether you develop metal, silica, polymer or other nanoparticles, MP-SPR is an excellent choice for nanoparticle characterization. Get your before and after images with TEM, SEM or AFM. See the dynamics of self-assembly, targeting, release or internalization in real-time with MP-SPR!
