Insplorion’s Sensors

Insplorion provides nanoplasmonic sensors, which enable ultrasensitive measurements of refractive index changes close to (< 30 nm from) the sensor surface.

The sensors can be coated with a range of materials, which allows studies of how surface chemistry influences processes such as molecular adsorption and thin film phase transitions. Insplorion offers also plasmonic nanostructures of various types and sizes, allowing the user to perform systematic studies of how surface processes are influenced by the surface topography/structure.

Insplorion’s software, Insplorer, offers user-friendly instrument control (temperature, gas flow/mixing and optical measurement) and real-time data presentation.

Instrument control sequences can be programmed, including temperature ramps (XNano and X1) and for different gas compositions and flows (X1). Up to seven analysis parameters can be chosen individually and are derived in real time from the optical data. The analyzed data parameters are plotted simultaneously in real-time during a measurement.
