Long Business Description:

Hielscher Ultrasonics specializes in the design and manufacturing of high power ultrasonic homogenizers for lab, bench-top and production level. Ultrasonic power is an effective and energy-efficient means to apply high shear and intense stress to liquids, powder/liquid mixtures and slurries. This makes it a strong alternative to high shear mixers, high pressure homogenizers and agitated bead mills.Hielscher ultrasonic devices are in use worldwide as laboratory mixers, high shear mixing equipment, full-size in-line homogenizers or particle mills. The applications span mixing, dispersing, particle size reduction, extraction and chemical reactions.

Hielscher ultrasonic devices are used in the synthesis of nanomaterials as well as in the formulation of compounds and composites containing nanomaterials. This includes the use of ultrasonics during precipitation and the deagglomeration of nano-size materials, like metal oxides or carbon nanotubes.

Ultrasound is used in the formulation of paints and coatings for: emulsification of polymers dispersing and fine milling of pigments size reduction of .

Ultrasonic cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative for the cleaning of continuous materials, such as wire and cable, tape or tubes. The effect of the cavitation generated by the ultrasonic power removes lubrication residues like oil or grease, soaps, stearates or dust.

At Applied Photophysics, we are committed to progress. Everything we do is done because we believe it will make a difference, that in the hands of our customers, it will advance scientific knowledge and understanding, and have a wider societal impact. We challenge entrenched views, encourage fresh ideas and incorporate the best of them in our products.
Since its creation in 1971 by The Royal Institution of Great Britain under the leadership of Nobel Prize-winning Lord Porter, Applied Photophysics has remained at the forefront of the technologies of circular dichroism, stopped-flow kinetics and laser flash photolysis.

Instruments:
Quantitative Circular Dichroism: qCD
Stopped-Flow Spectrometry
Laser Flash Photolysis

Polymer Applications:
Interest in conjugated polymers used in e.g. photovoltaic cells has grown over recent years and there is considerable interest in advancing organic photovoltaic devices (OPV) by systematic optimisation of device processing conditions and development of new materials. The use of laser flash photolysis in the near infrared region allows direct monitoring of photogenerated charges.
Charge photogeneration at donor/acceptor heterojunctions is the basis of the function of organic solar cells. Extensive attempts are currently being made to improve OPVs. A clear understanding of OPVs is crucial for systematic optimisation of processing conditions and the choice and development of materials employed. A blend of P3HT and PCBM is involved in one of the highest efficiency solar cells to date. The yield and lifetime of the generated charges can be measured using transient absorbance spectroscopy.

Lambient Technologies LLC, based in Boston, Massachusetts, develops instruments, sensors, and software for monitoring the dielectric properties of curing polymers. These properties provide unique insights into the chemistry, formulation, reaction rate, viscosity, and cure state of epoxies, polystyrenes, polyurethanes, silicones, SMC, BMC, and other types of thermoset materials.

Dielectric cure monitoring, or Dielectric Analysis (DEA), has wide application in research and development, quality assurance and quality control, and manufacturing.

Lambient Technologies’’ products are designed for flexibility and ease of use. Together they form an integrated system for studying polymers and optimizing manufacturing processes.

Lambient Technologies was founded in 2008 by members of the team that commercialized products by Micromet Instruments, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) spin-off that pioneered the technology of dielectric cure monitoring in the 1980s. Since then, members of our team have developed dielectric cure monitoring products for Metrissa/Holometrix and Netzsch Instruments, giving us more experience in this technology than any other company in the field.
