The UK is at the forefront of the nanotechnology revolution. With the power of the University of Lincoln's nanotechnology research behind us, at JBL Science we can provide innovative solutions for your research-driven projects. From angstrom-scale imaging of surfaces, through particle sizing, homogeneity and physical property analysis to spectroscopic determinations of molecular structure and properties, we have many technologies that can aid in the characterisation of your nanomaterials.

Nanotechnology is one of the cutting edge industries spanning physical, chemical and biological sciences. It describes the ability to manipulate materials at the atomic, molecular or supramolecular scales. Nano-materials have a range of potential applications from use as surface coatings, in cosmetics, to help cars burn petrol more efficiently or to make drugs work better through molecular nanotechnology applications.

Naomaterials need extensive characterisation and, because they are necessarily small, specialist equipment is required. At JBL Science we have imaging technology that can cope with the most demanding nanotech applications and spectroscopic tools that can characterise most molecular families. We can add significant value to your nanotechnology applications by providing a one-stop-shop to the cutting edge technology coupled to scientists and academics with expertise in data interpretation, particularly in nano-materials.
