The company manufactures nano-architectures for a variety of applications. Their core activities are related to developing enhanced photonic devices for chemical and biomolecular sensing. Other major applications include solar energy harvesting, regenerative tissue and micro-fluidics. One of their most highly developed technologies, the SERS Sensor may be used for pharmaceutical and environmental pollutant detection. The working principal is based on Raman spectroscopy. It is the first Raman based molecular sensor that relies on a traditionally inactive plasmonic materials. Control of stability, corrosion resistance, biocompatibility etc. are now much more accessible to R&D labs and process engineers.
Optical Dynamics has a history of developing innovative optical products, durability enhancing coatings, and highly engineered nano/polymer films. The company is pursuing new business and product development opportunities for nano-based coatings and optical materials.
