ABOUT US

We strive to make a positive impact on the world we live in by enabling groundbreaking scientific discoveries with our highly sensitive EMILIE nanomechanical infrared analyser

We use the synergy of our multidisciplinary team and apply the mechanics point of view to the optics world to create radically new infrared analyser based on innovative nanoelectromechanical sensing (NEMS) technology.

Invisible Light Labs GmbH was founded 2019 by Dr. Josiane Lafleur and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Silvan Schmid. Niklas Luhmann and Hajrudin Besic joined as co-founders in 2023.
