• Job Description

    Since its creation in 2015, One Silicon Chip Photonics (OSCP) has been developing high-performance state-of-the-art Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) systems and solutions. From initial versions based upon Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical (MOEMS) accelerometers and gyroscopes, OSCP is evolving it IMSs into fully integrated optical systems based upon a Resonant Micro-photonic Gyroscope (RMG) scheme delivering significantly better accuracy and performance than MEMS and MOEMS devices. Based on its proprietary know-how, OSCP’s IMU will offer a higher level of reliability, better efficiency, and lower cost in a significantly smaller package than current optical-fiber based solutions in the market. OSCP is actively looking for creative and talented individuals to join and evolve its team of talent.
