1. Newton Photonics Wins a NSF SBIR Grant for OCT Glucose Monitor

    The National Science Foundation has awarded a nearly half-million dollar grant to startup Newton Photonics Inc. to create a non-invasive optical sensor capable of continuously monitoring a patient’s glucose levels. The NSF made the $480,000 Phase 2 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award on Nov. 3, explained the Newton-based company’s co-founder Shmuel Halevi. The firm specializes in making biophotonic sensors. The NSF cash will fund the company’s effort to create the glucose-monitoring instrument using proprietary Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) technology. Currently, no company has released to market a glucose monitor using OCT. Existing technologies from larger ...
