Optics11 is a fast-growing high-tech company that makes measurement systems based on optical fiber technology, measuring nanoscale effects in difficult environments. Originating from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Davide Iannuzzi founded the company in 2011 together with Hans Brouwer. Building on so-called fiber-top technology, they laid the foundation for a range of measurement solutions, which are now finding their way into successful products. 

Optical fiber sensing technology
The unique fiber sensing systems, as developed by Optics11, are a combination of two nanotechnologies: fiber-top technology and fiber interferometry. Using micro-manufacturing technology, Optics11 can fabricate Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems on the end face of an optical fiber. Combined with unique fiber-interferometric read-out technology, very precise measurements can be performed in the harshest environments, in the smallest spaces. Nanoscale measurements of vibrations, acoustics or forces are now made easy and accessible.
