Date:7/25/2013

Bellingham, WA and Pittsfield, MA (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Several winners of the prestigious Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation have been in the news recently with more recognition for their life-enhancing, ground-breaking inventions.

The Prism Awards, sponsored by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and industry publisher Photonics Media, honor winners in nine categories at a gala banquet held during SPIE Photonics West early each year in San Francisco. With top executives and other leaders from the international photonics community as presenters, the event celebrates the industry and honors creators of innovative new products based on light-based technologies such as lasers, optical systems, photovoltaics, and solid-state lighting.

Two of this year’s winners, TAG Optics, awarded the prize in Optics and Optical Components, and Princeton Instruments, which won in Detectors, Sensing, Imaging, and Cameras, have been included among the R&D magazine 2013 R&D 100 Award Winners.

Verisante, winner in the Life Sciences and Biophotonics category, recently received a Bronze Edison Award winner for innovation from Edison Universe, and was among Popular Science magazine’s “Best of What’s New Award” listing for 2011.

Illustrating the caliber of presenters ? from established companies such as Google and JENOPTIK as well as outstanding newer firms ? 2013 presenter Allison Lami Sawyer’s Rebellion Photonics is among companies vying for the Wall Street Journal Startup of the Year title.

Products for which the companies are getting noticed are:

  •     TAG Optics: TAG Lens 2.0, using ultrahigh-speed acoustics to increase depth of field in industrial and commercial optical systems
  • Princeton Instruments: IsoPlane SCT spectrograph, research-grade imaging spectrograph, for cleaner, sharper imaging with biomedical and other applications
  • Verisante Technology: Aura, a non-invasive multimodal imaging device for skin-cancer detection
  • Rebellion Photonics: Gas Cloud Imaging, a continuous chemical imaging camera to identify oil refinery leaks very early, providing more time to shut down operations safely.
