Photonics Spectra
Feb 2007
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Troy, N.Y., has licensed its adaptive scanning optical microscope technology to Thorlabs Inc., a manufacturer of photonics products based in Newton, N.J. The company is positioned to bring the technology to market, making it accessible to researchers worldwide. The device automates tasks in biological laboratories, providing the ability to view large areas of a sample while maintaining high image resolution. The technology was invented at the Center for Automation Technologies and Systems at the institute, based in part on funding from the National Science Foundation.

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...
