Meet Material Sensing!
The same way humans have a fingerprint that identifies them, materials have an optical fingerprint that identifies them. Spectroscopy makes those fingerprints visible. It allows the identification, differentiation and even quantification of substances in liquid or solid compositions. We call this Material Sensing and build spectroscopic sensors for it.
Our Material Sensing hardware, software and services form a powerful toolbox. It contains all necessary elements to integrate Material Sensing capabilities into existing products or develop new ones. Easy, affordable and ressource efficient.
What makes us unique?
Broad spectral coverage
Our spectoroscopic sensor technology is capable of capturing selected wavelengths of light in the range of 400 to 1800nm. So we can cover both the visible (VIS) and the near-infrared (NIR) spectrum on a single chip.
Robust, small, mobile
Less components, more flexibility. Our Material Sensing technology works without optical elements like gratings. The resulting monolithic sensors are robust, small and mobile friendly.
Low cost & powerful
Since our VIS-NIR spectroscopic sensors are based on organic electronics, they are both low cost and powerful at the same time. Thus, they are ideally suited for mass market applications.
Using our toolbox, you can mix and match the tools you need to develop your material sensing solution. Plus, our sensors are customizable too. The result is a sensor solution perfectly adapted to your application.
applications and industries - a few Examples
VIS-NIR spectroscopy is a very powerful Material Sensing technique. It is close to impossible to list all potential applications. So take the ones listed below as possible examples to get your imagination going. Contact us to learn if your application is possible too!
Food + Beverage
fruit ripeness, typical ingredients like water, fat, protein, sugar,
alcohol and many more.
identification of textiles or carpets, dryness, detergent quality, stain identification and many more.
Paper + Pulp
paper quality, paper moistness, paper composition, recipe adherence and many more.
Identity check of medical pills, active agent identification, raw material purity and many more.
