SensL has signed a contract with the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) for the optimisation of low-light detectors and the supply of prototypes for possible use in the lab's GlueX experiment. The total value of the contract for the prototype studies is $200,000.

GlueX is a nuclear physics experiment that aims to understand the nature of confinement in quantum chromodynamics by mapping the spectra of exotic mesons generated by the excitation of the gluonic field that binds quarks.
