Leti delivered its first suspended microresonators to MIT in 2014, following suit with a new generation of the component in 2015. The microresonators still deliver femtogram precision—but they now also boast a network of sensors for even faster analysis and redundant measurements.
The microresonators are being used in the US where they help medical professionals measure tumor cells present in patient tissue samples.
The partnership between MIT and Leti has been extended with a third order for the microresonators and could be expanded as the two institutes shift from a subcontracting agreement to a joint development model in the form of an R&D contract and the co-filing of patents. The partners are currently seeking out potential government grants.
