Company Overview

  We are a high-tech company, which have developed a breakthrough nanofabrication technology to grow constant diameter, silver-gallium (Ag2Ga) nanoneedles, at any preferred location (e.g. SPM Probe tips) and orientation. We can fabricate Nanoneedles from 1 to 100 micrometers in length and 25 to 1000 nm in diameter. Our goal is to advance the Needle-probe technology, develop mass production techniques and make NaugaNeedles the leading manufacturer of SPM probes in North-America. NaugaNeedles is a supplier of high performance, durable, low-cost and customized Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) probes, used as nano-force and nano-bio sensors in research and industrial applications.

Company History

   In 2004, after years of research and experiments at the University of Louisville’s Electro Optics Research Institute and Nanotechnology Center (ERINC) a revolutionary and cost effective nanostructure fabrication method was discovered. Based on this original and breakthrough discovery, a variety of specialized SPM probes called Needle-Probes were invented. Needleprobes are now utilized as ultra sensitive nano-sensors by researchers. Due to the unique properties and market need for special Needle-probes, the inventors of this technology founded NaugaNeedles, LLC on July 7th 2007.

NaugaNeedles is currently located at:

11509 Commonwealth Drive, Suite #2, Louisville, Kentucky 40299
