Emberion Graphene Imagers

A 2018 Emberion presentation gives quite a lot o information about the company's progress and products:

An earlier 2017 presentation compares graphene sensors with incumbent technologies.


  1. I'd like to know what their proposal for optics for a vis + LWIR camera is. Germanium and germanium-alternative lenses for LWIR are opaque in the visible range.

    Are there some, lens-free applications (contact imaging?) that could use vis + LWIR capability without optics?

    1. There seems to be a single LWIR pixel. Or at best the LWIR pixel array is next to the vis/swir array.

  2. a few days back there was a post about a quite interesting paper about this (among other) new approaches:

  3. will be interesting to learn about their price point. one major claim of the 'alternative' approches to SWIR sensors like this graphene or for example CQD is a huge advantage in price vs. for example InGaAs. up to now i am not aware of an product that can fullfil such claim. does anybody know about some sensoric I can buy right now or in a year that does fullfil the claim?
