Delivering technology from the page to prototypes.
We've developed new prototypes of high performance SWIR, MWIR and LWIR infrared cameras. Our expertise in MBE for both HgCdTe and III-V Type-II super-lattices yield top-quality sensor materials. Our groundbreaking colloidal quantum dot based cameras provide high sensitivity and speed at a extremely low cost.
Our smart cameras utilize multi-spectral and hyper-spectral infrared sensors. Medical prototypes include bio-sensors and smart cameras for triage. Real-time image processing with AI-enhancements provide maximum visual quality and information density at high speed.
We also offer a range of modeling and simulation expertise that we've proudly used in collaboration with many industry leaders.
