- Photonics is a new and innovative solution for the health care industry
- With it, a lot can be done in a short amount of time
Leinse sees opportunities in the healthcare industry. “It is already possible to measure blood saturation with your phone or make a heart video with a watch. If we supply GPs with the right tools to scan, for example, suspicious birthmarks, the threshold to be examined is lowered.” Such applications may be suitable for third-world countries as well, as they are small and accessible. A lot can be done in a short amount of time. It is a nice way to make the world a bit better with technology from Twente.
As enabling technology, photonics makes all sorts of innovations possible. Leinse expects photonics to grow just like electronics did. “Photonics will not replace electronics since true value lies in the combination of both.” Sending and receiving data with the help of photons ensures more efficient, better and faster equipment. Leinse develops applications with photonic chips for metrology and life sciences, among others, at Lionix International.
