The grant program, called MSInnovation, is geared toward cutting-edge research programs that break new ground with their applications and techniques. SpectroCam is available in three models -- VIS, UV and SWIR -- that can be utilised for biomedical, forensic, art conservation and authentication, archaeology, agricultural, industrial and surveillance applications. Collected images are based on specific spectral bands, including regions beyond what the naked eye or traditional cameras can see in the UV and infrared. Unique information obtained from multispectral data allows powerful analysis and unlocks new methods for experimental design.

Researchers from accredited academic institutions or relevant private industries may apply for the grant. Submissions will be evaluated by Ocean Thin Films employees based on the following: feasibility; innovation in the scientific field; commercial potential; creative application of multispectral imaging and alignment with Ocean Thin Films goals. The company expects to award up to 10 grants, and international applications are encouraged.

To apply, send a one-page submission describing the research program's aims and intended use of the SpectroCam to MSInnovation@oceanthinfilms.com by January 31, 2013. Grants will be awarded in February. Multiple applications per individual or group can be submitted, but only one award will be issued. If selected, a more detailed report describing the applicant's proposed use will be required. Ocean Thin Films will work with chosen recipients to configure a SpectroCam for their specific needs.
