Enabling the Next Generation of Ultrasound Imaging
At Sonus, with our polyCMUT technology, we are set out to redefine the ultrasound landscape. Born at the University of British Columbia and honed through independent characterization and versatile integration with various ultrasound systems, we're pioneering new applications in healthcare, NDT, wearables, and more. Our high-performance, highly-customizable and flexible transducers open doors to opportunities beyond the reach of conventional technologies.
Polymer-based Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasound Transducers are tiny vibrating drums (the diameter of a human hair) that can send and receive ultrasound waves to create images.
We have advanced fabrication facilities in North America with state-of-the-art microfabrication and measurement equipment, including class-100 cleanroom, optical and acoustic characterization tools.
From miniature arrays to large flexible matrix arrays, our transducers empower novel applications in ultrasound that require high bandwidth and sensitivity with agile design and production.
We are a nanotechnology company on a mission to revolutionize ultrasound imaging and sensing, empower novel applications and democratize healthcare diagnosis. We are advancing our proprietary polyCMUT technology internally and through strong and growing partnerships. Our team has 80+ years of combined academic and industrial experience in ultrasound, nanotechnology and semiconductors.
