Eddy Lite

Economical and easy use of eddy current based testing of carbon fiber composite and metals Eddy Lite provides economical and easy use of eddy current techniques to test materials and structures exploiting novel developments in integrated sensors and robotic scanning. The focus is on Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) used in strong lightweight structures found in […]

Firefly Quantum

Firefly Quantum is making optical circuits as easy as electonic circuits. In electronics the printed circuit board provides a low-cost, high-performance route to market for custom circuit designs. This essential link between breadboards and integrated circuits is missing for optics. The way optical circuits are built hasn’t significantly changed in 50 years. Students, researchers and […]


Flowsure develops an automated urine production monitor that improves patient safety while reducing nursing workload. Patients are monitored by checking vital parameters including the continuous urine output. Today’s manual registration of urine output is too labor intensive, resulting in critical patient information not being available to ensure their safety. Flowsure automates urine output registration by […]


ImRheo provides a new technique to measure the mechanical properties of soft materials, based on image processing and artificial intelligence. ImRheo’s goal is to develop a cheaper and simpler rheometer, which can be used for applications in food (foams, emulsions, colloids, etc.), cosmetics (gels, creams, foams, etc.), constructions engineering (concrete), petroleum (waxy oil), coating (paints), […]

Nano Hybrids

Nano Hybrids aims at solving the synthesis of hybrid core-shell nanoparticles to unlock their potential. After more than 30 years of research, the potential of nanoparticles for applications with high technological and societal impact is widely agreed upon. But, production methods remain a bottleneck for their wide deployment into broader markets. Nano Hybrids is developing […]

Optical DOSY

An optical probe that characterizes molecular structure and size We have designed and are currently optimizing an optical liquid sample cell that simultaneously measures the size and IR/UV/Raman spectrum of molecules/particles in solution: Optical Diffusion-Ordered SpectroscopY. In the case of mixed samples, the optical spectra of the different components are cleanly separated by size. This […]
