Opsydia, a spinout from the University of Oxford, has unveiled ground-breaking new technology that will help address the risk of tampering and counterfeiting in the diamond sector. Using high precision lasers, Opsydia can make tiny marks, less than 1/50th of the size...
Microscopic identifiers created by Opsydia’s Systems form a physical link between a specific diamond and its grading report, blockchain record or branded jewellery origins.
Using next-generation surface and sub-surface laser techniques, Opsydia provides methods of confirming a diamond’s identity and empowers all stages of the diamond supply chain to protect the integrity of diamonds and other gemstones.
Opsydia is in the research and development phase for a new wave of applications in diamond-based devices. With precision control, our laser technology can create high spatial resolution electrically conductive tracks, arrays of electrodes and quantum colour centres within diamond wafers. Applications include radiation detectors, chemical sensors and quantum devices.
What People Say About Us
We work with manufacturers, industrial groups, technology specialists and commercial brands to meet their unique requirements
We are honoured to have been able to collaborate with Opsydia in refining the criteria for a Nano ID so that it can be integrated into diamond grading practices. Diamond traceability and security are important issues in the diamond supply chain, and it is important that such scientific techniques be developed for the trade and to ultimately strengthen consumer confidence."
