new spin-off of Université Catholique
de Louvain is using second generation track
etched technology and sees very wide applications
such as circulator, (bio)sensors, lab on a chip,
high troughput screening, microwaves filters or just
simply high-tec separation.
the nucleus of a new spin out from the Université catholique
de Louvain (Belgium) dedicated to the development
and production of unique templates based on energetic
ion track technology.
it4ip technology is used to track and etch polymers as a film or as a thin layer
deposited on a support. Track etched sheets are made of polycarbonate, polyimide
or PET, while thin layers of these polymers can be track-etched after deposition
on a substrate such as glass, quartz or silicon. Using the specific features
of this technology, pore size and pore density are controlled over wide ranges.
A variety of materials (metals, semiconductors, oxydes, heterostructures) can
be deposited into the pores as nanowires or nanotubes; these structures can be
produced with over wide range of aspect ratios with excellent shape control,
and can be either used in-situ or easily harvested by simple chemical dissolution.
it4ip technology is also able to confine nanopores and hence nano-objects into
zones as small as 1 micron square (patterning process) and so create a nano multiwell
Applications : High troughput sceening, sensors, electronics, very precise separation,
cell culture etc.
