Manufactures ferrofluids, a stable colloidal suspension of magnetic nanoparticles in a liquid carrier. The particles, which have an average size of about 10 nm, are coated with a stabilizing dispersing agent (surfactant) which prevents particle agglomeration even when a strong magnetic field gradient is applied to the ferrofluid.
Labsphere is world leader in light testing and measurement, and optical coatings. The company?s products include LED, laser and traditional light source light measurement systems; uniform light sources for imaging device calibration; spectroscopy accessories; and high diffuse reflectance materials and coatings for applications in backlit panel displays, computed radiography, and system calibration.
Develops ultra-precision machine systems, typically utilizing Single Point Diamond Turning and Deterministic Micro-Grinding technologies, for the production of plano, spherical, aspheric, conformal, and freeform optics.
Develops and commercializes products that use reference distribution aerial image formation (RIF) as a core technology. Products that range from nanoscale microscopes to advanced semiconductor nanolithography exposure equipment are anticipated.
