ALPhANOV wins the Prism Award for its GoSpectro in the "detectors and sensors" category.


ALPhANOV has been awarded by the Prism Award, the most prestigious international competition for innovative photonics technologies. Often dubbed the “Oscars of Photonics”, the Prism Award Ceremony has been organized by SPIE and Photonics Media during the Photonics West event in San Francisco. This event highlights the most innovative developments in the photonics market.


GoSpectro is a simple device that turns any smartphone or digital tablet into a light spectrometer. Measure, save and export light spectra... on the go! It works with a dedicated mobile application available on Android and iOS. The app also has all the usual features of a smartphone such as data exchange by email, the ease of use of a touch screen as user interface and battery operation. Simple, ultra-compact and inexpensive, the GoSpectro puts the power of spectroscopy in the hands of everyone.



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.


Technical specifications:

  • Spectral range: 380 – 750 nm
  • Spectral resolution: <10nm
  • Size: 55 x 20 x 20 mm. Weight: 30 g
  • Measurement of emission (ex: fluorescence), absorption, transmission and reflection
  • Automated spectral calibration in wavelength and intensity
  • Analysis tools, comparison and archiving of spectral data
