SpectralSight Receives Grant from NSF
The National Science Foundation has awarded a nearly $500,000 Phase II Small Business Innovation Research grant to SpectralSight, a company spun off by Infotonics Technology Center, both of Canandaigua, N.Y. The grant will be used to develop a hyperspectral miniature camera based on a tunable Fabry-Perot microelectromechanical systems device that is being developed at the center. The camera will analyze wavelengths outside the visible spectrum and will have applications in medicine, agriculture and defense.
- 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...
