The interaction of light with semiconductors is at the core of some of the most important innovations of our time. Nearly all imaging, communications, and solar energy systems depend on photonic devices.
SiOnyx is commercializing a patented semiconductor process that dramatically enhances the infrared sensitivity of silicon-based photonics. As a result, SiOnyx’s Black Silicon platform represents a significant breakthrough in the development of smaller, lower cost, higher performance photonic devices.
Founded in 2006 by Professor Eric Mazur and Dr. James Carey of Harvard University, SiOnyx continues to focus on improving the performance of light sensing devices commonly used in consumer, commercial, and defense related applications.
