ALPhANOV was selected amongst the finalists for the Prism Awards, the leading international competition for innovative technologies in photonics in the "Detectors and Sensors" category for its GoSpectro.
GoSpectro is a simple device that turns any smartphone into a light spectrometer. Measure, save and export light spectra... on the go! GoSpectro puts the power of spectroscopy in the hands of everyone, offering the world’s most compact and most simple light spectrometers. This patented device allows to turn any smartphone into a light spectrometer in order to measure, record, analyze and export spectral data. It is the ideal companion for students, professionals or anyone who needs to measure a light spectrum on the go.
This enables to perform material characterization and analysis with an ultra-compact device natively connected to the internet, with applications in gemology (gem identification), food industry (color measurement, allergen detection), water quality (pollution detection), academia/teaching, anti-counterfeiting (fluorescent inks), art, etc.
The next Photonics West exhibition will be held in San Francisco from January 31 to February 2, 2017. The tradeshow will host its traditional Prism Award ceremony (often dubbed the “Oscars of Photonics”), organized by SPIE and Photonics Media, highlighting the most innovative developments in the photonics market.
