Our Mission

Our Vision

Welcome to N5 Sensors, Inc.

Innovative Chip-scale

Nano-sensor Technology

We are a sensor company, commercializing high-performance sensors and detectors for various applications utilizing innovative sensor technologies. This new sensor technology can produce sensors whose selectivity can be precisely tuned to any small set of chemicals through the design of the nanocluster, something currently not possible with any other technology. Our unique 3D nanostructures are being utilized for next generation opto-electronic devices. Click for more information about technology.

May 21, 2016: Dr. Ting has been graduated with PhD in Electrical Engineering from University of Maryland (UMD), College Park. Dr. Ting was supported by N5 through Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) Program that connects the resources of the Maryland public universities to businesses from all parts of Maryland.  He will join as a postdoctoral scholar in Laboratory for Physical Sciences at UMD soon. Congratulations Ting!
