Opcondys’ Next-Generation Power Electronics

Co-founded by the husband-and-wife team of Dr. Stephen and Kristin Sampayan using equipment accumulated over lifetimes dedicated to electrical and mechanical engineering, Opcondys aims to enable the next generation of power electronics. Their device — known as the Optical Transconductance Varistor, or OTV — could fundamentally change how power is switched across the U.S. electrical grid and enable greater penetration of renewable energy sources.
