In situ real-time monitoring of molecular processes and nanomaterials at surfaces and interfaces

Insplorion’s technology is extremely sensitive to changes in optical properties in the first few tens of nanometers from a surface. Our instrumentation enables a broad application base, with ultra-sensitive measurements both in gas and liquid phase. The combination of technology and instrumentation enables detailed studies of the effect of broad range temperature changes, light triggers, nanotopography, chemistry and more.
