Basic research is the research and iterative testing that is done at the very beginning of a new idea—to test a theory, answer a question, investigate a phenomenon. Some ideas work and move into the product and process development stage and other ideas may not. Conducting basic research requires significant technical expertise to overcome the hurdles and problems that may arise when investigating a new product or process.
Lorad has over two decades of experience in inorganic chemical manufacturing and has developed numerous unique and proprietary processes that we employ in-house and have provided for our customer's applications. We employ a team of scientists, engineers, and technicians that have a broad range of manufacturing and product development experience. Our team has enabled us to stay at the forefront of technical advances in the field of materials science.
Whether you are seeking assistance with short term laboratory work, more complex iterative testing, or even a full-scale research program, Lorad has options that can assist you.
Due to the unique nature of basic research as path to the development of a new product or process, Lorad is sensitive to the concerns of our customers that their rights in the product or process under development are protected. Lorad has standard non-disclosure agreements, confidentiality agreements, reservation of patent and ownership rights agreements, which our customers may use. Alternatively, the customer may choose to provide their own agreements. Lorad is committed to protecting the privacy and intellectual property rights of our customers as we work along side them.
Our basic research services can be purchased separately, with or without Lorad products and we always welcome your feedback as to other services which you would find of value.
Examples to Consider
- Lorad has developed from basic research iterative testing of numerous different configurations and frameworks a Focused Energy Synthesis process that is now used to produce commercial quantities of nano-particle sized materials as small as 25 nanometers.
- Lorad has performed extensive research into Cerium doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet for our customers LED applications.
- And quite a few more innovations.
