  • PI Names New Managers
Sep 2009
Princeton Instruments (PI) of Trenton, N.J., announced that Ed Gooding has been promoted to product manager of the Spectroscopy Group, Greg Combs has been promoted to product manager of the Industrial Group, and Matt Lyons has joined the company as sales and marketing manager for the Acton Optics & Coatings product line. Gooding, previously PI’s applications specialist for spectroscopy, holds a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to joining PI, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Pittsburgh and as a visiting professor at Swarthmore College. Gooding has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals. Combs, who has more than 15 years of experience creating imaging solutions in the machine vision and consumer electronics markets, has been with the company for seven years, working as lead sales applications engineer for the Megaplus camera line. Lyons joins PI having held positions at Tiger Optics (Warrington, Pa.) as the US sales director, as product specialist at Entegris (Chaska, Minn.) and as regional sales manager for Delta F Corp. (Woburn, Mass.). He holds a BS in chemical engineering from Northeastern University. Princeton Instruments makes high-performance CCD, ICCD and EMCCD cameras, spectrographs and optics-based products for the scientific research, industrial imaging and OEM markets.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
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...
