Lumetrics

BioPhotonics
Mar 2013
A handheld eye scanner could improve access to vision-related health care worldwide, thanks to a grant issued to Lumetrics by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Rochester, N.Y.-based medical technology company has received $973,000 from the NIH’s National Eye Institute to develop the digital instrument for retina inspection. The camera’s development was led by Fillip Ignatovich, Lumetric’s chief technology officer, and David Kleinman, an academic retinal specialist at the Flaum Eye Institute, also in Rochester. It was made possible through a patent by Steven Feldon, director of the Flaum Eye Institute, and Geunyoung Yoon of the University of Rochester, both of whom will assist with the project.



GLOSSARY
camera
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...
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...
