Create and define thin films

KSV NIMA Langmuir Blodgett instrumentation enables cutting-edge innovation in thin film fabrication and characterization.

KSV NIMA provides instruments and measurement solutions for the fabrication and characterization of advanced organized thin films with controlled packing density. The most common applications include for example depositing highly controlled nanoparticle coatings and studying biological lipid membranes.

What our customers say

Our instruments are present at many prestigious universities and research facilities worldwide. Take a minute to find out what others say about working with KSV NIMA instruments. 


CNRS / Université de Lorraine, France

“Our studies aim for instance at characterizing the interaction of drugs or toxics with monolayers. We use KSV NIMA Langmuir troughs to form monolayers and control packing densities. Our relationship with KSV NIMA is very special: they always give very fast answers and they are interested in helping us with our research.”


Kyoto University, Japan

"We are using LB troughs to try to accumulate the polymer on a substrate. Because of its user-friendly features, KSV NIMA LB troughs are the best choice. Also, since replacement of students regularly occurs at the University lab, the easy to use KSV NIMA trough, I believe, really fits this type of environment.”
