Optical sensors

Customized proprietary sensors and detection systems. Our optical detectors improve performance and reduce size, cost, and complexity.

The optical detection devices and systems we have invented and prototyped range from miniaturized differential refractometers to wavelength-encoded optical sensors, to novel flow cytometers, to hyperspectral cameras. We leverage our deep in-house expertise in microsystems, electronics, light emitters, software, and algorithms to develop custom optical sensors and detection systems.

The core inventions used in our optical detectors are usually clever combinations of hardware and software, merged to achieve uncompromised or improved detector performance while reducing hardware size, cost, and complexity. These detectors are commonly used for various applications and therefore embedded into different measurement systems. For example, our wavelength shift detector has been demonstrated in a broad variety of applications for Fiber-Bragg grating readout and picometer wavelength determination of individual laser pulses, and optical calorimetry.

In these applications, we provide not only customized proprietary sensors and detection systems but also help the users of these systems evaluate and understand the data. We always draw from a large pool of experience when applying our optical sensors, newly developed or well-established, to new sensing applications.
