Quantum Science is a leading material science company focusing on advanced materials for applications such as image sensors, biosensors and water treatment. Our world class research team with leading expertise in chemistry, biology and physics allows us to bring innovation to life.
Sensing beyond what we can see
We are also developing cutting-edge materials for use in next generation image sensors. These devices can detect beyond current image sensor’s visibility allowing humans and machines to become smarter and see the invisible.
Our technology can be used for exciting new applications such as augmented reality, self-driving cars, surveillance and security and Internet of Things (IoT).
Reducing stress by testing faster and cheaper
In the biomedical market, we are developing materials that will improve sensitivity, accuracy and speed up how patients are tested for diseases such as cancer. Currently test for cancer remission, for example, takes weeks before patients receive results and imposes a huge cost burden on the NHS.
With our innovative technology, the tests could potentially be done at home and patients would receive results in just a few minutes. This not only reduces the cost for the NHS but also reduces the stress for the patients who would otherwise have had to wait for weeks.
Clean water for everybody
We have designed advanced polymeric membranes for drinking water and use in various industrial applications. We aim to solve the current most challenging issues for water filtration membrane systems such as fouling and low flux.
Membrane fouling happens when materials such as particles, colloids, precipitate, organic and microbial contaminants deposit on a membrane surface or in membrane pores. This leads to severe decline in flux and the quality of the water produced. As a result, the energy used is increased and more frequent cleaning is required.
Flux is the measure of how much water passes through a unit area of membrane in a certain time period. Current commercial polymeric membranes exhibit low flux and get fouling within short operation time.
With solid expertise in resin formulation, surface modification and nanomaterials, we aim to develop the next generation membranes with high flux, strong anti-fouling property and improved durability at a lower price.
