History, Awards & Recognitions

The basic technology of UNISERS was invented by Ali O. Altun during his Postdoc in 2016. The commercialization process was greatly supported by the ETH Zurich Accelerator program (ETH Pioneer Fellowship). Additional support from several support programs allowed UNISERS to develop the most sensitive optical inspection tool.
