FIRST IN PHOTONICS
Founded in 2003, Si-Ware Systems (SWS) is a fabless semiconductor company that is fostering silicon innovation.
Si-Ware’s Optical MEMS Technology business has developed the worlds’ first single-chip FT-IR spectrometer under the brand name NeoSpectra™, using its unique platform – Silicon integrated Micro Optical Systems Technology (SiMOST™), that allows for the creation of multiple optical components on silicon.
NeoSpectra sensing solutions are miniature and low cost spectral sensors and scanners that can be used in a wide variety of material sensing applications. The solutions offer performance comparable to laboratory based spectrometers, but at dramatically smaller sizes and lower costs.
NeoSpectra scanners are portable and handheld spectral sensing devices based on FT-IR spectroscopy which can be used in a wide variety of material sensing applications. In NeoSpectra, all the optical and mechanical components are integrated on single MEMS chip, enabling FT-IR functionality on a chip scale. The monolithic integration is enbaled by using Si-Ware Systems’ proprietary Silicon integrated Micro Optical Systems Technology (SiMOST) platform.
The NeoSpectra-Micro is the world’s smallest FT-IR sensor based on monolithic MEMS technology. It features an integrated spectral sensor that can be used in a wide variety of material sensing applications for qualification and quantification. The sensor offers performance comparable to laboratory based spectrometers, but at a dramatically smaller size and lower cost.
