NanoLambda

Location:PA, US
Speaker:Bill Choi
Title:CEO
Primary Industry:Electronics
Executive Summary:NanoLambda is developing Spectrum SensorTM, an ultra-compact, low-cost spectrometer-on-a-chip, based on novel plasmonic devices. Each pixel of the Spectrum SensorTM chip detects a predefined wavelength of light from an input source, yielding a spectral fingerprint for each material being imaged. Unlike expensive and bulky conventional solutions, the nanoLambda’s high resolution spectrometer-on-a-chip enables non-invasive and multi-target monitoring capability at an ultra compact size, only a few mm*mm, and at very competitive cost, lower by multiple magnitude of order than competition through the standard wafer process. While initial applications are expected to be high-resolution color sensing, the sensor will also be used for chemical detection, blood diagnostics, biochips and wearable health monitors. As a key component to these markets, it is anticipated that the total addressable market for the spectrometer-on-a-chip will be over $1 billion in 2012. NanoLambda was founded in 2005, as a spin off company of the University of Pittsburgh and has been funded by NSF, TTC(The Technology Collaborative), Innovation Works and PLSG(Pittsburgh Life Science Greenhouse).

“A major challenge for both the technology and the financial communities is finding a forum in which all parties can interact and explore possibilities for future innovation. TechConnect was created to fill this void, bringing both sides together under one roof into a setting that ultimately will help significant ground-breaking concepts come to life.”
 
Matthew Laudon, Co-Founder and Director of TechConnect
