Silicon integrated Micro Optical Systems Technology (SiMOST) is SWS’ innovative and proprietary platform that enables the design, validation, and fabrication of monolithic optical systems on a single silicon chip.
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 not only enables to tremendously downscale optical systems’ size, but it also enables to upscale its range of applications and market opportunities.
