Research and development of new nanofiber materials. Nanofiber materials with unique sound absorption characteristics and for the elimination of mechanical or biological impurities of inhaled or exhaled air.
Provides expertise and solutions in the main areas of materials (incl. nanofiltration membranes and CNT based composites), catalysis (incl. nanostructured metallomacrocycle carbons) and catalytic systems, electrochemistry, membranes and sensors focused in the energy, petrochemicals, environmental monitoring and remediation, defense and the aerospace industries.
Eulitha manufactures large-area periodic nanostructures with uniquely high resolution and quality. The resolution (half-pitch) of the structures is below 20 nm and the patterns are free of defects such as stitching errors found in e-beam made ones. Eulitha provides one-dimensional linear gratings and two-dimensional dot arrays or grids.
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.
The company has developed a unique electrospinning process to produce nanoscale fibers and structures that can be manufactured on a mass scale. These nano fibers and structures are used in a wide-range of applications and markets, and offer significant performance improvements over exsiting membranes, films and microfiber media.
