Scalable for Throughput

LamdaGen’s LSPR sensors are a continuous metallic thin film which is characterized by a variety of unique physical, optical, and electrical properties that can be precisely controlled and tuned during manufacture for specific uses. These patented nano-structured films are “grown” on most any surface (glass-polymers-stainless-ceramic etc) and to nearly any size, shape or geometry, again depending on need or use. Due to this flexibility, the Company’s robust sensors are also quite scalable.

LamdaGen’s LSPR biosensors are easily grown to any size or shape on nearly any solid support including glass, polymers, stainless, ceramic etc.Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. LamdaGen Corporation manufactures Functional Nano-Materials that are precisely organized, controlled and tuned for desired properties and application. The Company’s metallic thin-films can be specifically manufactured to perform catalytic processes. The adjacent graph is part of an early Meta-Catalytic Surface (MCS) data set. e H2O2 model comparing MCS to a traditional bulk catalyst of the same metal. LamdaGen’s MCS exhibits remarkable properties as a powerful catalyst for many reactions, including redox reactions.

Complementary to the ability to produce LSPR metallic thin films to be “grown” on almost any type of material, we also can “grow” in virtually any size, shape or dimension. In fact, the films can be manufactured in large continuous sheets and later die cut and or twisted, turned or folded for specific commercial purposes.

This sort of flexibility is novel considering the powerful nature, robustness and high sensitivity of our LSPR sensor films, particularly when one begins to understand that the films can be used in non-bio ways as “dry-sensors”.

Optical Electrochemistry (OEC)

Optical Electrochemistry™ (OEC™)

OEC is monitored optically, requiring no electrodes to detect responses

OEC is highly sensitive to the local refractive index changes that can occur when electrochemical reactions take place at the surface, e.g., redox reaction, oxide film formation and ion adsorption.

OEC coupled with electrochemical methods is a powerful diagnostic tool.

Glucose Oxidase (Gox) and Glucose

  • The rate of hydrogen peroxide generation is proportional to the concentration of glucose analyzed.
  • Hydrogen peroxide modulates the refractive index of the LSPR sensor resulting in a remarkable optical change monitored
  • OEC allows detection of specific molecular targets at low concentrations
  • Results in 30 seconds
LamdaGen manufactures functional nanomaterials that are proven capable of acting as powerful catalysts for various reactions,  including redox ones. LamdaGens’s nano based catalytic LSPR grown on polymers for light sensing,  photovoltaic and energy harvest. plasmonics_img4 plasmonics_img5

Tweaking solar cells w/quantum dots

by Citizen_J

Potential 45% increase in efficiency
Researchers from the University at Buffalo, Army Research Laboratory and Air Force Office of Scientific Research have developed a new, nanomaterials-based technology that has the potential to increase the efficiency of photovoltaic cells up to 45 percent. Specifically, the researchers have shown that embedding charged quantum dots into solar cells can improve electrical output by enabling the cells to harvest infrared light, and by increasing the lifetime of photoelectrons
