Contact person : Ioannis Raptis –

Location: Athens, Greece

Year of creation: 2009

Type of technology:

White Light Reflectance Spectroscopy for the fast and accurate characterization of films from sub-nanometer up to 1milimeter thickness.

Product solutions

A complete suite of products for the non-destructive characterization of single and multi layer coatings (thickness, optical properties (refractive index, colour etc.) either off-line or in-line. Significant installation base in Europe and Asia (industry and research organizations)

Disruptive innovation (s) :

Radical technology for the accurate and with high lateral resolution characterization of films and at a wide thickness range.

Personalized Ultra miniaturized biochips for the accurate and at the Point-of-Need determination of critical for human health biomarkers and harmful substances in food.

Experience and/or interest in financing their product development through publicly funded projects:

Successful participation (coordinator or participant) in national and EU projects (FP7 and H2020) in the areas of micro/nano electronics, MEMS, chemical sensors, biosensors, IoT

Other possible applications of their technology:

a) Chemical Sensors (characterization of chemical sensing coatings for humidity, VOCs, etc.).

b) Polymers (measurement of glass transition and thermal degradation temperatures, dissolution and swelling properties)

c) Biosensors for human health and food safety: quantitative determination of critical for human health biomarkers (CRP, D-dimer, PCT, T-PSA, f-PSA) and harmful substances in food (pesticides, mycotoxins, alleges, pathogens).
