SWITCH Materials develops revolutionary new materials based on proprietary organic molecules that “switch” optical properties on command.
SWITCHâ€™s molecular switches can be developed for a number of applications, especially in the areas of molecular electronics and health sciences, including optical filters, photochromic inks, paints and fibers, high-density optical information storage systems, molecular sensors and biomarkers for labeling and tracking of live cells.
SWITCH has assembled a team of cutting-edge materials scientists with combined expertise in synthetic chemistry, polymer processing, optics, and molecular & materials engineering. SWITCH conducts its research and development activities in our own laboratories and the state-of-the-art analytical and clean room facilities at 4D LABS, Simon Fraser University’s new $40 million materials science research centre.
