Surrey NanoSystems – Blacker than original Vantablack!

Published on Mar 4, 2016

This is a new development of the Vantablack process (just out of the reactor and after reflectance testing). It’s resulted in a coating so black that our spectrometers can’t measure it! Even running a high power laser pointer across it hardly reflects anything back to the viewer.

We have never before made a material so ‘black’ that we can’t measure it on our UV-VIS or MID-IR spectrometers. Watch this channel to see where it leads!
