Animation describing unique benefits and application areas of our detectors
The excellent responsivity and noise performance of the graphene sensors leads to high fidelity image quality with smaller X-ray dosages and competitive manufacturing costs compared to existing sensor technologies. The large dynamic range of the
sensor ensures the capture of detailed images even in case of extreme intensity level variations with a single exposure. Novel detector device form factors, e.g. curved panels, can be achieved by building sensor arrays on a flexible substrate.
Graphene-based sensors are well suited to various applications for example medical and industrial X-ray imaging, quality control and security.
- High fidelity image quality
- Smaller X-ray dosages
- Lower manufacturing costs
VIS-NIR Imaging & Night vision
Our graphene sensors have an excellent detectivity performance over a wide spectrum of wavelengths from visible to NIR and SWIR light and thus they enable passive imaging in low natural light conditions. These sensors can be built on silicon substrates and integrated on CMOS wafers, which leads to a competitive manufacturing cost.
Potential application areas of broad-spectrum imaging sensors include passive and active imaging solutions in low-light conditions, for example in automotive, aviation, surveillance, security and search-and-rescue applications.
- Large spectral and dynamic ranges
- “See” more with a single sensor
- Uncooled SWIR performance (detectivity) comparable to cooled InGaAs photodetectors
- Cost competitive compared to InGaAs-technology
Our unique uncooled graphene microbolometers with pyroelectric technology provide superior thermal responsivity, leveraging the high-gain and low-noise characteristics of integrated graphene transistors. They can be used for thermography as either camera sensors or few-pixel devices. Graphene microbolometer arrays can be suspended above the substrate, and monolithically integrated on wafers using post-processing, including optimized encapsulation and IR optics.
Potential application areas include building construction, thermal insulation and leakage assessment, security, law enforcement & surveillance, gas sensing, medical imaging and industrial process and quality control.
- Spectral sensitivity in microbolometry
- Two orders of magnitude higher thermal sensitivity compared to existing microbolometers
- Low noise equivalent power (NEP)
- Ultrasensitive, scalable pixel size
- Compatible with standard CMOS
The spectral response of the graphene sensors can be tuned over a range of wavelengths from the visible to short wavelength infrared, using a functional layer of semiconductor nanocrystals. A sensor array capable of detecting a very wide range of wavelengths can be fabricated by combining sensor elements with different functional coatings into a single module to enable multispectral imaging with a single sensor.
Spectroscopy-based analysis methods have applications in various industries for example in spectroscopy for agriculture, food industry, pharmacy and waste sorting applications & CMOS manufacturing quality control.
- Extended spectral range from 400 nm up to 1800 nm and even above
- Very sensitive to low light levels: can be used to detect even small amounts of materials/chemicals of interest and small variations in composition
- Does not require cooling: improved robustness and decreased power consumption, system size, complexity and running costs
- Cost efficient manufacturing, fewer components
