OtO Photonics was founded as “OtO Science” in 2006 in Hsinchu City, Taiwan with the objective of leveraging Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) micro grating technology to develop compact spectrometers.
Renamed OtO Photonics in 2010 the company now provides unique microspectrometers based on their innovative semiconductor grating chip technology. This "non-spherical, mass-producible" grating replaces the "collimator-plane grating-focusing mirror" optical structure used in traditional spectrometers and combines grating and focusing functions into one micro-sized component. The microchip concave grating technology leverages patented algorithms to calculate curvature and ray-tracing to eliminate aberrations and achieve high resolution of 2nm.
When combined with OtO’s high-precision optomechanical designs and software the MEMS grating technology enables microspectrometers which push the performance envelope to deliver the benefits of high accuracy, ultra-compactness, shock resistance, weather resistance and low cost.
