Integrated Micro Sensors, Inc. (IMS) was established in 2000 in Houston, Texas for the expressed purpose of bringing the leading-edge wide-bandgap semiconductor sensor technology to the market place.  Due to the rapid growth of its activities, IMS was incorporated in early 2003.  To further enhance its capabilities, IMS has signed an agreement with the University of Houston, through which, IMS has a direct access to broad base technologies and collaborators expertise, and the right of use of over $30M array of thin-film growth, optical and electrical characterization, and device fabrication facilities. The company is running with continuous funding from private contractors and government grants. The company occupies over 1400 sq. ft. of office and lab space equipped with the state-of-the-art thin-film growth, characterization and device fabrication stations.  The lab equipment includes instrumentation for growth of thin-film materials by laser deposition, evaporation, molecular beam epitaxy, chemical beam epitaxy, metal-organic beam epitaxy,metal-organic chemical vapor deposition, ion beam deposition, and sputtering.


Our mission is to emerge as a leading company providing practical solutions in developing new technologies and commercializing advanced products with a competitive advantage to serve the demanding niche-applications of renewable energy storage and generation and sensors development for harsh environments in commercial, industrial, military, and medical markets.
