Industries and Applications


UVC System Custom Designs

We develop custom UVC systems that produce precise and consistent UVC doses for applications that need to be disinfected or sterilized but can be damaged by too high of a dose. UV LEDs allow flexibility for tailoring the dose and getting good consistency because they can be turned on and off quickly, fit into small areas, and emit the exact desired wavelength.

Food Quality Preservation

UVC is used in many food industries including meat, fish, poultry, dairy, produce, beverages, and frozen food. However, if over-dosed, food can be damaged such that cheese can smell burnt or lettuce might brown and wilt. Our custom designs can protect from such over-dose by providing the right amount of light in the right place.

Public Health and Safety

UVC is used to disinfect and sterilize public surfaces which need to be irradiated without being degraded. Our custom designs can help protect the public by tailoring the dose for the specific application.

Medical Safety

Tools, reusable masks, and surfaces need to be repeatedly disinfected and sterilized to protect from dangerous pathogens. However, various polymers and fabrics can be degraded if the dose is too high too often. Our custom designs can tailor the dose so it preserves longevity while protecting those we love.

3D Microfabrication

We are developing an advanced light-enabled 3D microfabrication technology that allows complete three-dimensional freedom to design and fabricate micro-devices. Our technology will revolutionize industries involved in advanced silicon (and other semiconductors) microdevices such as MEMS sensors and actuators, silicon photonics, photonic crystals, metamaterials, microfluidics, and 3D chip integration. Furthermore, our technology will enable completely new devices and industries made possible by directly engineered full 3D microstructures.

MEMS Sensors & Actuators

MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) sensors and actuators are found in smartphones, automobiles, game consoles, theater projectors, desktop printers, medical devices, and many other products. By expanding MEMS design to full 3D devices, our technology will enable improved performance and smaller form factors. (Image is a MEMS resonant accelerometer from Politecnico di Milano.)

Silicon Photonics

Silicon Photonics is optical integrated circuits used in telecom, data centers, high-performance computing, and other applications. Our technology will allow waveguides to be routed anywhere in the volume of a chip rather than just on the chip surface, enabling significantly higher integration and new silicon photonic devices. (Image of a silicon photonic thermal sensor from Sandia National Laboratories.)

Microfluidics

Microfluidic devices are used in DNA analysis, clinical pathology, enzymatic analysis, proteomics, and other applications. Our technology will allow variable cross-section and size channels (not just rectangular) routed three-dimensionally through the volume of the chip with the possibility for engineered semi-permeable membranes between channels. (Image of a microfluidic chip with multiple inputs and outputs.)

3D Integration

3D integration combines dissimilar integrated circuits (e.g., a logic chip with a memory chip) into a single chip. The ability to integrate different kinds of chips into a monolithic device has enabled continued performance improvements in computing devices. Our technology will allow new advances and capabilities in 3D integration. (Image of a 3D integrated circuit.)

Photonic Crystals

Our technology will take precision manufacturing to a completely different level with precision features accurate to tens of nanometers and completely arbitrary 3D features. Examples include molds for advanced lenses, very small-scale surgical tools and other medical devices, microscale components for luxury analog watches, and many other structures.
