Ithaca’s Tornado Spectral Systems Named Finalist in SPIE PRISM Awards

Tornado Spectral Systems, Ithaca, NY   has been nominated for the SPIE Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation in the category of Detectors, Sensing, Imaging and Cameras for their OCTANE-860 “spectrometer on a chip” nanophotonics spectrometer.

The OCTANE-860 turn-key fully integrated package never requires alignment and can be customized for high-resolution or broad-bandwidth preferences. Standard fabrication processes used in prototyping are easily transferable to commercial foundries. Tornado’s spectrometer-on-chip solutions are robust, miniaturized optical engines designed for high-performance measurements and at a fraction of size, weight, and cost of free-space systems.
