• Make 3D Vision Everywhere
    Full-stack 3D vision solution by combining hardware and software
  • Proprietary 3D vision technology
    Nanophotonic chips powered by data-driven AI algorithms
  • Ubiquitous 3D vision applications
    Multi-billion dollar market: smart phones, intelligent payment, AR/VR, and robotics.


Founded in April 2018, Deptrum Limited is a tech-driven startup from Silicon Valley. It has already received investment from well-known VC including Northern Light Venture Capital.


Deptrum's vision is to enable the ubiquitous 3D computer vision to the 3D real world.


Leveraging the cutting-edge nanophotonics technology and combined with data-driven algorithms, Deptrum has developed a novel 3D vision solution optimized from photons to bits.


Deptrum's unique advantage is built upon a full-stack solution from hardware to software, which achieves not only superior performance, but also compact size, low cost and efficient power.


Deptrum's technology enables multple billion-dollar markets including intelligent terminals, AR/VR, intelligent security, robotics, and automated medical.

Creative &Innovative


Deptrum has built a team of talents with strong technical background and domain experience. The company has set up development centers in Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Silicon Valley. The company also has an academic team of consultants, including academicians of the American Academy of Engineering, associate dean of the University of California at Berkeley, and head of the Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University.

  • Li Zhu(CEO): Dr. Zhu received his Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley and BS degree from Electronics Engineering from Tsinghua University. During his Ph.D research, Dr. Zhu invented the first artificial chameleon skin, and selected as Optics of the Year in 2015. He also developed the first flexible 1550nm wavelength VCSEL. Prior to founding Deptrum, Dr. Zhu served as depth hardware design lead at Apple Inc. for developing depth sensing hardware products. Dr. Zhu was selected as 30 under 30 by Forbes China for commercial technology in 2018. Dr. Zhu was also a gold medal winner for International Physics Olympiad in 2006, gold metal and absolute winner both for Asia and China and Physics Olympiad in 2006 and 2005.
  • Bo Wang(CTO): Dr. Wang obtained his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University and B.S. from Tsinghua University. During his Ph.D. research, Dr. Wang pioneered the first in-memory database that supports hardware-based data-deduplication. He has extensive experience in parallel computing, distributed systems and heterogeneous computer architecture. Before Deptrum, Dr. Wang was in charge of the deep learning platform for the perception system at Zoox, a leading self-driving car startup based in the Silicon Valley. Dr. Wang was a recipient of Stanford Engineering Fellowship and Accel Innovation Scholars. Dr. Wang served as the president of Student Association of Science and Technology at Tsinghua EE Department.
  • Fanglu Lu(Chief Scientist): Dr. Lu obtained his PhD degree from University of California, Berkeley and Bachelor degree from Tsinghua University, both majoring in Electrical Engineering. His advisor at Berkeley was Professor Connie Chang-Hasnain (a member of National Academy of Engineering), a world-class expert in VCSEL. With a research focus on nano-photonics and nano-lasers, he has published nearly 30 journal and conference papers, among which three won best student paper awards and one was selected to Spotlight of OSA (Optical Society of America). He was also a recipient of “Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad”.


光鉴科技自2018年4月成立以来,得到了多家媒体的关注和报道。创始人兼CEO朱力在加州大学伯克利分校攻读博士学位时,发明了第一个柔性变色龙皮肤,被美国光学学会选为2015年光学重大突破成果。2018年8月更是被评选为“2018 FORBES CHINA 30 UNDER 30”。
