Silicon integrated Micro Optical Systems Technology (SiMOST)
licon integrated Micro Optical Systems Technology (SiMOST) is SWS' innovative and proprietary platform. Using the library of our patented and validated components, SiMOST enables to design, fabricate, and interface with single chip monolithic optical systems.
Our principal technology is based on Deep Reactive Ion Etching (DRIE) over SOI. Accordingly, we are able to obtain highly robust optical MEMS devices with high performance. Other technologies such as wet etching and surface micromachining are available and can be used as needed by different applications.
SiMOST devices have great advantages over the current state of the art optical systems in terms of size, reliability, and cost creating a wide range of new applications and market opportunities.
