A New Way to Build Optical Sensors

Optical spectrometers are used in many areas of industry and research.  In this talk, I will describe a new method for building small, capable spectrometers that changes the way sensing in done .  By incorporating this theoretical breakthrough into a manufactured product, we can upgrade the payload capabilities of small platforms and handheld devices to perform high-quality remote sensing at low cost.  I will tell the story of how this discovery came to be, and where it has led.

 Meeting Sponsored and Hosted by:
