An optical waveguide is a structure that guides light waves by total internal reflection. It consists of an inner core layer, a dielectric material (high permittivity, high refractive index), and an outer cladding material layer (lower refractive index than the core). Syntec Optics manufactures on-chip waveguides integrated with microfluidic (lab-on-a-chip) devices.
Syntec Optics has developed top-quality manufacturing and delivery of intricate parts for optical waveguide applications. Syntec Optics makes critical components for devices that can provide actionable diagnoses of complex diseases like HIV. We fabricate disposable optical microfluidic waveguides to enable comprehensive diagnostics at the point of care (POC).
