Bloch Labs

Bringing vacuum gauges to the 21st century

The Company

Bloch Labs applies a patent-pending nitride semiconductor gas sensing platform to bring vacuum metrology to the 21st century.

Blueprint
Circuit board

The product

  • Vacuum Gauge on a chip, a solid-state solution
  • Covering the full pressure range from rough to UHV on a single chip
  • Based on the absorption of gas molecules from semiconductor surfaces
  • Application in semiconductor manufacturing, food packaging and space equipment
  • Drop-in gauge replacement solution
  • CMOS compatible
  • Compact
  • Harsh environments: High magnetic fields, High temperature

The Team

We are a team of driven physicist entrepreneurs focused on transferring promising semiconductor technologies from laboratory to the market. We can produce devices starting from epitaxy to fabrication, packaging and characterization.
