Over 8 million Euros for Dresden sensor technology
Senorics GmbH on the way to mass production
The Dresden high tech company Senorics has closed an 8 million € pre–series A financing round. The money allows for the necessary investments to scale the innovative material analysis sensor technology for the industrial market. The circle of investors was joined by FIDURA Private Equity as lead investor and ZEISS Ventures. The previous cooperation with Ventura Investment, the Technologie Gründerfonds Sachsen (TGFS) and the TU DresdenAktiengesellschaft (TUDAG) will also continue. They have participated in thecurrentfinancial round with a significant investmentand have been supporting Senorics since 2018, when they took part in the seed funding.
The German company specializesin novel near–infrared spectroscopy sensors. They are smaller than a 1 cent coin and thus can be integrated into household appliances and smartphones. The sensor allows for a contactless analysis of material compositions, which until now was only possible in laboratories using bulky spectrometers.
In infrared spectroscopy a solid or liquid material is irradiated by light. Based on the wavelength distribution of the reflected light, material compositions can be identified and quantified. In an industrial context,for example,the technology allows for process monitoringand quality controlbecause of its ability to detect contamination.
Currently Senorics is working on the setup of a pilot line, which will be ready before the summer. The company is supported in their undertaking by the Dresden Integrated Center for Applied Physics and Photonic Materials (IAPP) of TU Dresden. The milestone is also made possible by the Saxon Ministry of Economy and their program to fund the installation of pilot lines for key technologies.
