Solo® Spectroscopy is a next generation resonator-based diode-integrated spectrometer chip. It is the only spectrometer where both dispersion and detection functions are co-located within a single structure - a high-Q microring resonator. This offers the potential for excellent spectral resolution.
As a monolithic chip Solo® spectroscopy has many benefits which enable cheap spectroscopy to take place in previously unreachable places:
ZiNIR has been cited as one of a dozen ‘up-and-coming’ photonics companies in 'Under the radar' at Photonics West 2012, by optics.org and Solo® Spectroscopy was the focus of the cover story in Laser Focus World, October 2012..
