Ocean Thin Films announces multispectral imaging grant programme

Share this on social media:

Ocean Thin Films is calling for grant proposals featuring multispectral imaging applications that would utilise the SpectroCam platform. SpectroCam is an imaging system that integrates scientific-grade sensors with eight filters to produce multispectral images. This grant gives participants the opportunity to add a high-end instrument to their lab at little or no cost.

The grant programme, called MSInnovation, is geared toward cutting-edge research programmes 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.
