Senorics develops customizable sensor solutions for VIS and NIR spectroscopy. We address applications and processes in all industries that want or need to determine constituents or compositions of raw materials, consumables or end products. Here is where we excel:


Identify and even authenticate the substance you are analyzing.


Discover whether the analyzed sample meets your quality requirements or not.


Get an idea of how much of a certain substance is in your sample.


The following depiction describes the general process of VIS and NIR spectroscopy, that is also used for our sensor solutions.

1. Illumination

The sample to be analyzed is illuminated with a light source that emits visible or infrared (VIS/IR) lightwaves.

2. Reflection & Absorption

The emitted lightwaves are either being reflected by, transmitted through or absorbed by the sample.

3. Detection

A detector then detects the light waves reflected by or transmitted through the sample and translates them into data.

4. Identification

This data is processed to create the optical "fingerprint" of the sample, to allow the identification of ingredients, such as water, alcohol, etc.


The fact that we are able to offer an array of solutions to our customers is due to the unique combination of sensor properties that have been made possible with our technology:

Fully customizable

Individual sensors for individual applications. Our technology allows us to build fully customized sensor chips regarding pixel count, wavelengths covered, size and more.

Robust, small, mobile

Less components, more flexibility. Our technology can do without optical elements like gratings. The resulting monolithic sensors are robust, small and mobile friendly.

Broad spectral coverage

Capturing light from 400nm to 1700nm - our sensors can cover both the visible (VIS) as well as the near-infrared (NIR) spectrum with one integrated chip.
