Founded in 2015, BASF’s own start-up is fully dedicated to infrared and 3D sensing technology.
Infrared sensing: Chemical expertise for better microchips
For their infrared sensors names Hertzstück™, the team of trinamiX has developed a patent-pending thin-film encapsulation, which protects the sensor from oxygen and moisture. In addition, this encapsulation enables the miniaturization of the sensor. With such a small detector, miniaturized applications such as near-infrared spectroscopy in smartphones will be possible. Hertzstück™ can also be used for industrial applications such as flame and spark detection, gas analysis, moisture detection of classical spectroscopy.
Hertzstück™ are manufactured in the in-house production in Ludwigshafen. From the chemical deposition to the encapsulation – trinamiX produces the sensor in the chemical lab and clean room in mass production in different sizes as ...
The Ludwigshafen-based start-up trinamiX, a spin-off of BASF, is developing new methods for distance measurement and object recognition. These technologies are used, for example, in industrial automation.
Founded by a small team of researchers from BASF developing solar cells, today more than 60 employees are working for trinamiX. A creative team of engineers, electronics, computer scientists and chemists.
