Photonics technology company Open Photonics and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland are to collaborate on advancing Fabry-Perot visible and infrared spectroscopy and spectral imaging technologies.
Fabry-Perot visible and infrared spectroscopy and spectral imaging technologies have been developed by VTT. These technologies are expected to enable size and cost reductions in the next generation of spectral measurement instrumentation. Open Photonics is involved because it accelerates early-stage product development.
‘Open Photonics has introduced a new model for speeding commercialisation. We see great synergies in linking VTT’s spectral engine technology with our commercial partners focusing on bringing next generation sensing technologies to market,’ said Open Photonics CEO Jason Eichenholz.
The cost and size reductions combined with the expected access to new wavelength regions are viewed by the two companies as key drivers for future measurement and process control devices. VTT’s sensing platforms have been demonstrated in applications ranging from medical imaging, gas analysis, process monitoring and remote airborne sensing.
In January Open Photonics announced its approach to accelerating technology development. It is a two-stage research and development model that emulates the US government’s small business innovation research programme.
