OXFORD HIGHQ

Oxford HighQ is a spinout from the University of Oxford’s Departments of Materials and Chemistry that is developing next-generation chemical and nanoparticle sensors. Our core technology of optical microcavities provides fundamental enhancement of signal strength that will offer a step change in fluid-based sensing across a wide range of applications and markets. The company was incorporated in October 2017 building on 10 years of research within the University.

OPTICAL MICROCAVITY TECHNOLOGY

Microcavities provide a means to amplify optical signals. Optical microcavities are micrometre-sized devices which confine light to a volume of space comparable with the optical wavelength. The optical photons occupy highly resonant states within this space and generate large electric fields which increases the strength of interaction of each photon with any molecules or particles in the microcavity.

OUR Products

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.

Nanotrapper 200

More than a decade of work in quantum technologies within Oxford University results in a device that reports nanoparticle refractive index and particle size, on a particle-by-particle basis.
