We develop nanowire flow, temperature, and humidity sensors.
Instrumems’ revolutionary nanowire flow, temperature, and humidity sensors offer orders of magnitude performance improvements in speed (<0.01 ms response time), size (<1 mm x 1 mm MEMS die), and power consumption (~few micro-Watts) compared to traditional sensing technologies. Our patent-protected nanowire transducer is reconfigurable and capable of sensing multiple parameters in almost any gas or liquid. Our sensors are the fastest sensors on the market and provide highly time resolved data to facilitate real time monitoring or control applications. Furthermore, with an extremely small footprint that is 1000x thinner than a human hair, the nanowire can be seamlessly integrated into almost any system to allow for unparalleled spatial precision. At Instrumems, we’ve pioneered a MEMS-based nanowire fabrication process for high volume, low cost manufacturing. We’re first bringing our sensors to market in the consumer airflow devices (vacuums, hairdryers, etc.), e-cigarettes, and microfluidics sectors, where we are partnered with leading companies. We’re always looking for new commercial opportunities, so stop by our booth to chat!
