Photonics plays a major role in life science devices.
Main segments are:
- Lasers and silicon nitride (SiN) photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for POC and lab-on-a-chip devices to detect a wide range of molecules and infectious diseases including COVID 19.
- Custom optics and illumination for super resolution microscopy below sub-micron level for live cell imaging and DNA sequencing.
- LED-based fluorescence microscopy to detect tuberculosis.
- IR sensors for wearables, e.g., to detect body temperature and oxygenation of hemoglobin.
