Welcome to Insplorion
Insplorion is a Swedish company, which with our disrupting proprietary sensor platform, NanoPlasmonic Sensing (NPS), currently have three main branches of operation. Battery sensors, air quality sensors and NPS based research equipment. NPS is a technology that makes it possible to study Nano processes on surfaces and in thin layers. Because of the sensors’ high sensitivity, robust character and possibility for miniaturization, NPS is well suited for rough environments on the field, in the industry or in corrosive environments like inside a battery.
Air Quality Sensor
With increasing urbanization and increasing problems with polluted city air, the need for competitive air quality sensors has grown exponentially. Insplorion’s technology enables more robust, more reliable, smaller and cheaper sensors than what’s available in the low-price segment technology of today.
This makes it possible to build frequent networks of sensors, for example on each streetlight instead of like today, in just a few places in a city. This sensor type is in demand by authorities as well as for individual use in homes or vehicles.
The growing hydrogen economy calls for better and faster sensors to create reliable safety systems for production, transportation, storage, and use of hydrogen. Insplorion delivers the world’s fastest hydrogen sensor with sub-second response time, a broad dynamic range, and very high sensitivity and accuracy.
The sensor can revolutionize safety for vehicles, generators, maritime on-board power supplies, power-to-gas infrastructure, and biogas refineries. It also improves the understanding of fuel cells during development and optimizes their operation.
Thanks to the green energy transformation, an immense interest from the industry, paired with a potential to disrupt the market for lithium-ion batteries, our battery sensor operation has grown in importance. With an increased energy output, increased charge rate and radically lowered costs, the technology will have a decisive importance for the way batteries are used.
Increased mileage for electric vehicles, cheaper energy storage and an increased safety are three important contribution areas. Sensors measuring the voltage inside batteries on a molecular level enable controlling and monitoring of batteries in a way that previously wasn’t possible.
Insplorion’s products in the scientific field are complete research instruments for successful NanoPlasmonic Sensing (NPS) experiments in controlled gas or liquid flow chambers.
Furthermore, Insplorion offers NPS Sensor Chips with a wide range of surface chemistry and Insplorer®, our advanced software for control and real-time analysis of spectroscopic data. We can also offer custom-made instruments like the Insplorion X1.
The Insplorion X1 instrument was developed to study for example gas adsorption/absorption processes or phase transitions (e.g. Tg) in thin polymer films and materials relevant to catalysis in situ and in real-time from ambient up to 600C.
The Insplorion XNano instrument provides the opportunity to study processes in/on nanomaterials and thin films in situ and in real-time under relevant temperature and pressure conditions.
Combine optical spectroscopy with QCM-D. Simultaneous real time measurements with Nanoplasmonic Spectroscopy (NPS) and Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring (QCM-D).
Increased automation and smarter systems are global trends in society at large, where new demands of small, stable and sensitive sensors constantly emerge. With our technology applied in science equipment, we maintain our position at the edge of science where we can identify and technically verify new applications to match with market demand. Today we monitor possibilities in, amongst others, water purification, medical diagnostics, and industrial gases which all have the potential to become important applications. Read more.
