Photonics.com
Nov 2012
GOLDEN, Colo., Nov. 12, 2012 — Accredited academic institutions or private industry researchers breaking new ground with their use of Ocean Thin Films’ SpectroCam multispectral imaging platform are being encouraged to submit grant proposals, the company said.

SpectroCam is an imaging system that integrates scientific-grade sensors with eight filters to produce multispectral images. The grant program, called MSInnovation, gives participants the opportunity to add a free or subsidized SpectroCam to their labs.

Up to 10 recipients will be chosen by Ocean Thin Films employees based on the submission’s feasibility, innovation in the scientific field, commercial potential, creative application of multispectral imaging and alignment with the company’s goals. Applications will be accepted until Jan. 31, 2013; international applications are encouraged.

To apply, send a one-page submission describing the research program’s aims and intended use of the SpectroCam to msinnovation@oceanthinfilms.com.

Ocean Thin Films produces precision optical coatings, components and assemblies.

GLOSSARY
multispectral imaging
Multispectral Imaging: Creation of an image where each pixel contains more than three spectral data points, typically four to 20. This is contrasted with a standard color camera that only captures three spectral data points (called RGB), or hyperspectral cameras, which capture hundreds of spectral data points. Traditional multispectral cameras captured four data points: RGB and an NIR band. Nowadays multispectral cameras are available as commercial off-the-shelf products, with 12 custom bands...
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...
