The Opportunity

Metalenz is the global leader designing, manufacturing and selling metasurface based “flat optics” that are revolutionizing the 3D sensing market. Today, our optics improve the performance of time-of-flight and structured-light sensing systems, and tomorrow they will enable entirely new 3D sensing platforms that can sense an objects distance, shape and size, creating depth maps and identifying surface characteristics at levels of precision currently reserved for the most expensive lab equipment.

This next generation of machine vision capabilities is enabled by a single small and affordable 3D sensor based on our revolutionary PolarEyes technology, and fits into any Smartphone, Robot or Consumer Electronics device. Metalenz is a growing, venture-backed start-up spun out of Harvard University in 2016. The company has the exclusive worldwide license to the portfolio of foundational intellectual property relating to metasurfaces developed in the Capasso Lab at Harvard University, and has more than 20 patents on innovations that simplify and improve optical devices across multiple 3D sensing markets.
