History

 

In a joint study of Leiden University (Leiden, the Netherlands) and Max Planck Institute (Berlin, Germany) in 2015, Dr. Faez and Dr. Sandoghdar invented and patented a technology for imaging and tracking of nanoparticles confined in a naochannel inside an optical fiber using elastic light scattering. In 2018 Dr. Faez was granted an NWO Take-off Fase 1 grant to conduct a technical and commercial feasibility study. At the beginning of 2019, Dispertech B.V was founded and seed capital was provided by Nascent Ventures, a VC specialised in advanced instrumentation. In 2020, Dispertech received additional funding as part of NWO Take-off Fase 2 for the commercialization of the technology. The company has its office and lab at the Sciencepark in Amsterdam.
