Jun 2018
LARGO, Fla. — Optical sensing technology developer Ocean Optics Inc. has expanded its spectroscopy capabilities by partnering with thin-film pyroelectric sensor developer Pyreos Ltd. to develop new MIR solutions.

Ocean and Pyreos are working on an ultrafast, compact MIR-ATR (attenuated total reflectance) system for laboratories that will set a new benchmark for size and value in the research and science market. One of the first OEM products to result from the collaboration will be a device intended for anticounterfeit detection in food. The device will screen for the presence of adulterants.

Unlike traditional Fourier transform IR spectrometers, the combination of Pyreos’ detectors and Ocean Optics' applied spectroscopy knowledge will enable businesses and researchers to create rapid, accurate and field-portable devices. MIR technology provides possibilities for applications in chemical and pharmaceutical quality, food, and agriculture analysis, environmental testing, and scientific research.

“The collaboration with Pyreos allows us to broaden our MIR applications expertise while being part of projects with life-changing potential,” said Lora Allemeier, president of Ocean Optics. “We will continue to explore strategic partnerships with the leading innovators in optical sensing and take on emerging analytical challenges on a global scale.”

Ocean Optics brings applications and OEM development experience across the UV, VIS, and NIR ranges, while Pyreos is a supplier of thin-film lead zirconium titanium oxide pyroelectric sensors used for MIR sensing including in-line arrays. The partnership combines Ocean Optics spectrometer design and manufacturing expertise with the Pyreos line array technology.

“Compact MIR spectrometry sensors and products are now a pull market, and we see increasing awareness of new applications across the industry,” said Andrew Wallace, CEO of Pyreos. “Ocean Optics is a recognized leader in spectrometry and has brought expertise and precision to the project. Partnerships such as this are key to rapid development of new MIR techniques.”

Ocean Optics develops spectrometers, Raman systems, light sources, sampling optics, chemical sensors, optical fibers and multispectral sensing and imaging solutions for researchers, educators, developers and OEMs. Pyreos is a supplier of thin-film pyroelectric sensors used to measure composition in gas, flame, food safety and fuel in rugged environments.
