Nov 2017
BELLINGHAM, Wash., and PITTSFIELD, Mass., Nov. 22, 2017 — The world’s smallest FT-IR spectrometer, a lidar system for autonomous vehicles, and a smartphone add-on sensor for noncontact bioimaging — these products are among 30 finalists vying for Prism Awards in January. Marking its 10th year in 2018, the Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation program recognizes the industry’s top innovators and groundbreaking technology.

The 2018 Prism Awards honor the photonics industry’s top innovators, products and technology.

The awards are co-sponsored annually by SPIE and Photonics Media. Winners will be announced during the awards gala on Jan. 31, 2018, in San Francisco.

“Ten years in, the Prism Awards are casting an even wider light on the photonics industry. Each year, categories for the awards are driven by the innovations entered, providing direct insight into thriving and emerging ‘hot’ markets,” said SPIE CEO Eugene Arthurs. “Significantly, this year there are 10, rather than the usual nine. Biomedical entries are featured in two categories — Life Science Instrumentation, and Medical Diagnostics and Therapeutics — illustrating the vitality of that field. Also new this year are categories for inventions in Environmental Monitoring and for Illumination and Light Sources — very timely, as the world continues to work toward more sustainable energy sources and devices.”
