The broad area of research for JCLABS is particle technology. The size range of interest is from nano to micro and a variety of application areas including nanofluid, solid lubricant, polymer additives and viral growth are addressed. We understand how particles behave and believe that similar principles can be applied to solve a range of problems. Our application areas spans from large scale industrial operations such as cleaning of spent sulfuric acids to making branched zinc oxide nanostructures for solar cells. A few prominant areas on which we are currently working are:
