Welcome to Princeton Lightwave

In a world awash with photons, our mission is to detect and process them digitally, precisely, in real-time.  This is Geiger-mode technology.

Princeton Lightwave Geiger-mode sensing delivers disruptive capabilities for navigating vehicles autonomously, for imaging the world in 3D, for communicating without being hacked.

  • Our GeigerCruizer™ automotive LiDARs make driverless cars safer by seeing further.
  • Our 3D LiDAR cameras map our surroundings faster from the sky and on the ground.
  • Our Geiger-mode detectors make encrypted communications more secure.

Geiger-mode technology — from Princeton Lightwave.
