Award Description: National Science Foundation, Small Business Innovation Research Program Phase I, Project Title: Development of Miniature Endoscopic Imaging Probes for In Vivo Noninvasive Optical Imaging for Early Diagnosis of Lung Cancer.
Project Description: The objective of the project is to develop a miniature imaging probe for real-time in vivo minimally-invasive bronchoscopic optical coherence tomography for early stage diagnosis of lunch cancer. The company has the personnel in place and research underway. In the first quarter, it is mainly focused on the design and fabrication of the key component - a high-fill-factor MEMS mirror. The MEMS mirror can be packaged without wire bonding. This novel technique is called wire-bonding-free (WBF) packaging. The MEMS design and layout have been completed and the photomask set has been received. The first batch microfabrication is 50% finished. Meanwhile, the company is collaborating with General Photonics to design the imaging probes.
