Nano-dip coating USPs

DCN Corp’s main USP is its unique isolation of an usually spontaneous nano-surface reaction of Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) and/or the coherent laser transfer of Surface Plasmon Resonances (SPR).

This can then be repeatedly reproduced on previously unseen surface signal feedbacks via simple dip coating experiments at Standard Room Temperature and Pressure (STP) conditions.

This has been achieved through applying dip coating SERS experiments into its own unique 9 Combination (9c) nano-displacement protocol, which effectively constitutes dip coating at three different rates - and thereafter three different ageing times within a gold nanoparticle colloidal solution.

Such simplicity means DCN Corp has the realistic potential to mass-manufacture its nanomaterial solutions, adapting small-scale nano-fabrications gradually for medium or large scale platform applications.

Despite various academic journals exalting the theory of isolation and mass reproduction of the spontaneous SERS reaction, DCN Corp is the first such nanotechnology company to master the technique.

DCN Corp is currently seeking commercial and/or R&D collaborators to facilitate the development of DCN Corp's unique 9c protocol.  To get in touch please email: info@dcncorp.co.uk

How it could be utilised – The future...

DCN Corp has developed a nano-fabrication dip coating method.   This has the potential to bring about the following ‘nano-platform' solutions:-

  1. A trace-amount surface enhancing nano bio-sensor, which could be used as a simple lab-on-a-chip solution.  Other potential solutions could be a highly accurate, quicker, reproducible and more efficient application within DNA separation sciences, laser inducement instrumental analysis, on-site chemical/biological warfare detection, and negligible bio-analytical detection of food toxins among others.
  2. As well as the potential science and engineering applications - DCN Corp's nanotechnology solutions could also contribute to achieving a nano-scale computer chip transistor, which if followed to its fullest extent, could revolutionise the global semi-conductor industry.
  3. The potential mass adoption of DCN Corp's encapsulation chamber nanotechnology within laboratories, as well as promoting it among new nano-technologists within schools, colleges and universities worldwide.
  4. DCN Corp's Proof-of-Principle (PoP) nanotechnology could also translate into large-scale mass manufacturing applications to be employed within the automotive and aerospace industries.
  5. A long-term Missionary Aim is the creation of a DNA diagnostics nano-particulate bio-kit for the earlier diagnosis of Breast cancer, as well as potentially other cancerous tumors, diseases and/or cardiovascular conditions.

Understanding Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale.  Generally, nanotechnology works with materials, devices, and other structures with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometres (nm). 

Widely identified as a key technology for the future, nanotechnology has risen to prominence over recent years as governments and the private sector continue to invest billions of dollars in research and development.  The USA has so far invested $3.7 billion alone through its National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), compared to the EU’s $1.2 billion and Japan’s $750 million investments.

The field is diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional devise physics to completely new approaches, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nano-scale, to direct control of matter on the atomic scale.

Nanotechnology entails the application of fields of science as diverse as surface science, organic chemistry, molecular biology, semiconductor physics, and micro-fabrication.

Nanotechnology has the potential to create many new materials and devices with a vast range of applications, and DCN Corp is committed to being at the very forefront of advanced nanotechnology development.  Although still in its early stages, the company has already identified potential advanced applications for its solutions in healthcare and electronics.
