Orlando, FL--Open Photonics, a technology acceleration company, and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (Espoo, Finland) are partnering to accelerate the commercialization of VTT’s advanced Fabry-Perot visible and infrared spectroscopy and spectral imaging technologies.
VTT’s Fabry-Perot technologies enable size and cost reductions in the next generation of spectral measurement instrumentation. These properties combined with access to new wavelength regions are the key drivers for future measurement and process control devices. VTT’s sensing platforms have been demonstrated in many applications including medical imaging, gas analysis, process monitoring and remote airborne sensing.
“The Open Photonics team has strong know-how on the commercialization process, potential markets as well as potential partners and customers globally," says Howard Rupprecht, VP of New Business Development at VTT. "Our strategy is to make business out of technology, and by collaborating with Open Photonics and leveraging their business and technological expertise in photonics, we expect to accelerate the commercialization of our optical sensing technology significantly.” VTT is an applied research organization with turnover of EUR 290 million and a staff of 3900.
“Open Photonics has introduced a new model for speeding commercialization. We see great synergies in linking VTT’s spectral engine technology with our commercial partners focusing on bringing next generation sensing technologies to market,” says Jason Eichenholz, CEO of Open Photonics.
