AFFILIATION:   UT Austin and Omega Optics, Austin, Texas, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Medical & Biotech
Area: CBRN (Chem/Bio/Rad/Nuclear)
Tech Readiness: TRL 4

Tech Brief: It is a silicon-chip based optical technology. It provides unprecedented sensing capability without compromising the specificity. Slow light propagation provides stronger interaction with analytes and therefore generate a highly sensitive platform with system miniaturization. It can be connected with IPhone using Bluetooth while the system is portable.
