OPTICAL MICROCAVITY TECHNOLOGY
Oxford HighQ’s first nanoparticle analysis instrument will be available for purchase in January 2020.
It will measure the size and composition of individual nanoparticles with resolution of a few percent, unlocking new capabilities in particle characterisation:
- Measure drug load of nanoparticles for drug delivery
- Distinguish different nanoparticles of similar sizes
- Resolve more structure in inhomogeneous samples
Demonstration instruments are currently available to perform proof-of-capability measurements on customer samples.
Optical microcavities are micrometre-sized devices which confine light to a volume of space comparable with the optical wavelength.
