SpectrEcology to Distribute Ocean Optics Lines

Photonics.com
Oct 2007
mikemorris.jpgOcean Optics Inc. announced it has appointed SpectrEcology LLC to distribute its miniature spectrometers, fiber optics, chemical sensors and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) systems. SpectrEcology was formed by Mike Morris, former president and founder of Ocean Optics; both companies are based in Dunedin, Fla. SpectrEcology will provide engineering and support services to introduce Ocean Optics’ technologies into new markets, focusing on clients who need assistance with field science applications, in-situ or environmental applications such as heavy-metal detection, oxygen and pH measurements, natural coloration and color vision, ultrafast laser characterization, and radiometric measurements. Morris has more than 20 years of experience developing oceanographic instrumentation. He founded pHish Doctor Inc. in 1988 to manufacture and distribute pH sensors for aquariums. In 1989, he founded Ocean Optics and was awarded two Small Business Innovation Research grants that led to the development of a miniature spectrometer. In 2004, Ocean Optics was sold to Halma plc, a UK-based public company. (See also: Products, SpectrEcology LLC Smart Cuvettes and Ocean Optics Names Rob Randelman President)



GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
quantum dots
Also known as QDs. Nanocrystals of semiconductor materials that fluoresce when excited by external light sources, primarily in narrow visible and near-infrared regions; they are commonly used as alternatives to organic dyes.
