The company was founded in 2010 as a spin-off from CEA-LITEN and converts plastic and glass surfaces into smart surfaces through the application of printed, organic optoelectronic sensors. The company shares a laboratory with CEA-Liten and the funds raised will help the company install a line with the aim of volume production in 2015.
Isorg's organic photosensitive sensors offer a number of advantages over conventional silicon-based sensors in terms of price, energy, sensing area, and mechanical integration crashworthiness consumption. Just about the only parameters they don't compete on are resolution and miniaturization.
Isorg is seeking to address health with x-ray imaging, industry and consumer electronics.
The investors include: BPI France, Sofimac, CEA Investissement Partners, Grenoble Angels and Savoie Angels.
Jean-Yves Gomez, CEO of Isorg, welcomed the investment and said that Isorg's investors understood the financial, societal and value creation associated with the technology. "We are very happy to be the pioneers of this new industry in France and be accompanied by renowned investors who share our vision and ambition," he said.
