Unlock the unseen

Meet Polar ID, a full system solution for smartphone biometrics and beyond.

Benefits of Meta-Optics

Simplifying complex optical modules to enable new information in mass markets. Multiple optical functions implemented in a single, flat optic allow for complete control of all information in light. Our optics bring the precision of the semiconductor foundries and optics together for the first time.
What are Meta-Optics
When compared to traditional diffractive optics (DOEs), meta-optics (MOEs) produce substantially less stray light and have higher imaging performance at low f/# and across temperature.
4x improvement in signal to noise in 3D imaging systems.
Complete control over the intensity, phase, and polarization of every photon of light.
Multifunctional meta-optics replace an entire set of refractive/diffractive lenses, reducing the cost of lens integration, assembly, and alignment.
Metalenses are fabricated with a single semiconductor layer for high yield, cost effective mass production.
Extreme temperature stability enables worry-free reflow.
