Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) offer great advantages for life science applications. For example, embedded sensors in medical instruments open up opportunities for home-health-monitoring and point-of-care diagnostics. It also enables precision imaging of tissue and fiber optic shape sensing, which are ideal for preventative medicine and precision surgery. Any application that requires a high-performance optical spectrum analyser can benefit from Indium Phosphide PICs.

Inspiration into a world of applications enabled by PIC technology
  • Point-of-care/home diagnostics and monitoring using optical modules and components for low-cost (portable) Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).
  • Fiber optic sensors systems for in-vivo (intra-operative endoscopy-based) multi-point multi-parameter guidance.
  • Fiber optic sensors systems for real-time accurate distributed structural health monitoring in large/high-duty objects and (composite) structures.
  • Fiber optic sensors systems for cardiac interventions.
  • E-services for health records.

PIC technology enables minimal invasive medical instruments. Due to its size and costs they are easy to use and enable high volume (consumable) applications.
