LioniX is a leading provider in development and small to high volume production of leveraging and innovative products based on micro/nano system technology (MNT) and MEMS. Our core technologies are integrated optics and micro-fluidics. Our customers operate in telecom, industrial process control, life sciences and space markets and include OEM's, multinationals, VC start-up companies as well as research institutions from around the world. LioniX offers design to manufacturing and horizontal integration by partnering with MEMS/MST foundries and suppliers of complementary technologies, such as in (food) biotech/genomics, chemistry/pharmaceuticals and water technology. The combination of micro-fluidics and integrated optics gives LioniX an unrivalled expertise in the emerging area of Lab-on-a-Chip. LioniX provides MNT development and production services based on processes and equipment at the world-famous MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology.
The Nanolab is a professionally managed clean room facility with a large variety of high tech fabrication equipment, while the faculties have their laboratories for functional device characterization (1100 square meters class 1000 - all working spots class 100 or better). In addition, LioniX has its own clean-room facilities with equipment for the proprietary technology and dedicated test/analysis equipment (a.o. SEM) for integrated optics and micro-fluidic devices. LioniX developed their proprietary waveguide technology based on LPCVD Si3N4 and SiO2. This technology is branded as TriPleX technology and is currently one of the three “standard” waveguide platforms in the Netherlands (besides InP and SOI).
