Acal BFi and inno-spec sign pan-European distribution agreement

[:en]

Acal BFi and inno-spec have entered into an agreement to distribute hyperspectral imaging systems throughout Europe.

Acal BFi, a market leader in spectroscopy and imaging solutions, is proud to announce the signing of a pan-European distribution agreement with inno-spec. This agreement allows Acal BFi to incorporate hyperspectral imaging systems into their extensive product portfolio.

inno-spec has built a strong reputation in bringing innovative hyperspectral imaging systems (pushbroom imagers) and customised solutions to the market. Jean-Claude Sanudo, Business Development Director for Photonics, Acal BFi said “The partnership with inno-spec enables us to bring a unique and sophisticated imaging solution to customers throughout Europe. With inno-spec’s expertise in spectral imaging and our years of experience in providing spectroscopy and imaging solutions and advice, we are in great position to provide our customers with a complete photonics solution.”  

Oliver Grass, CEO of inno-spec, added “This unique cooperation represents a major milestone, which is inno-spec’s first distribution-partnership for the whole of Europe. We are proud to have engaged with such a strong partner who has great experience in spectroscopy. inno-spec’s technology has many key industrial uses and this new relationship will allow us to gain greater exposure throughout the European region. Acal BFI provides us a great opportunity to expand our market penetration into areas much more effectively to continue the positive growth of our company.”

inno-spec’s product portfolio covers spectral ranges from deep UV (down to 190 nm) to MIR (up to 5 µm today) with diverse products ranging from miniature solutions to high-end high resolution options. Their imaging systems have broad applications including forensics (UV mainly), color/fluorescence measurement (VIS), food, agriculture, biotechnologies and remote sensing (VIS/NIR), recycling and pharmaceuticals (mainly NIR), mining, gas and chemicals (MIR) and more.

Stunningly diverse SciFest science festival currently ongoing in Joensuu

Pasi Vahimaan kuva

SciFest, the number one science event of the year, will take place at Joensuu Arena for the ninth time in a row on 23–25 April 2015. Dozens of workshops, lectures, presentations, competitions and science cafés open to everyone focus on light and its properties, light-related phenomena and the significance of light.

“SciFest 2015 – Power of Light!” is open on Thursday and and Friday from 9:00 to 17:00, and on Saturday from 10:00 to 15:00. In addition to the traditional workshops aimed at families, Saturday’s programme also features the SciEdu professional development event for teachers. SciFest is open to everyone and free of charge. The festival is organised by Joensuu Science Society in cooperation with the University of Eastern Finland and other partners.

Come explore the power of light!

Is it possible to paint with light? How can robots be controlled with the help of light? Did you know that insects produce light, or that light can be used to study plants and humans? SciFest provides answers to all of these questions, and the festival’s offering is tailored to cater for all age groups. In addition to light, the festival also addresses the fields of natural sciences, technology, music and culture.

“For the first time, we are faced with the positive challenge of how to fit everyone who wants to organise a workshop in Joensuu Arena. Especially Saturday’s SciEdu professional development event aimed at teachers in the Joensuu region will motivate workshop organisers to stay for the entire festival. So we are looking for bright and insightful moments here at SciFest on Saturday,” says Ilkka Jormanainen, Technology Manager at Joensuu Science Society.

This year, SciFest includes a record number of companies and other organisations as workshop organisers, practical organisers and financial partners.

“We are very proud of how actively companies and other actors in the region have participated in organising and supporting this year’s SciFest. The involvement of new actors is just wonderful, and will surely help us take our activities to the next level,” says Pauliina Korhonen, Executive Manager of Joensuu Science Society.

Rapid growth and new career opportunities in silicon photonics

Finland is one of the pioneers in silicon photonics research. Here, like in many other places around the world, the related R&D activities are now increasing fast and leading into large-scale commercial exploitation. Following the long and well-known success of microelectronics the silicon photonics technology is now being taken into use in numerous applications that include short and long range optical communication, sensing and imaging.

The growth of silicon photonics R&D is now creating new job opportunities in Finland. As the Finnish pioneer in the field, VTT is recruiting one new Research Scientist for the design, simulation and testing of high-speed silicon photonic components, as well as 1-2 Summer Trainees to do silicon photonics measurements in Micronova.
