It4ip is a supplier of state-of the-art research and Hi-Tech products based on the combination of ion-track technology of polymers with template capability to make high value added nano-objects, nano-structures and smart membranes.\r\n\r\nThe range of polymers that can be track-etched has been increased. Control of pore shape and patterning of the zones where pores occur can now be achieved in membranes and in spin coatings on substrates such as silicon and glass. The nanoporous materials can also be “engineered” by filling the nano-pores with metals, alloys and polymers to make in-situ nanowires or nanotubes, assembled into structures and components using nanofabrication, lamination and embossing techniques, and interfaced with electrical circuitry. \r\n\r\nApplications in magnetic and microwave sensors and devices, chemical and biochemical sensors and analytical modules (such as the Lab on Chip and Microtitre plates) \r\n
