Plasmonics Electronically Addressable Super-Resolution (PEAR)
PEARlabs’ main product is their platonic chip.
This ground-breaking product is capable of taking super-resolution images of visualizing structures far beyond the diffraction limit of visible light, exploiting addressable plasmonic elements.
PEARlabs has proven the concept of their technology (which has been submitted for a patent). They’ve also developed an early stage prototype.
