The PPO HyperChannel Spectrometer Named 2012 Prism Awards Finalist in Defense and Security Category

2012 Prism Awards Finalists Announced

WATERLOO, Ontario - P&P Optica Inc., a world leader in the development of high performance optical spectrometers, has been named a 2012 Prism Awards Finalist by SPIE for the PPO HyperChannel System in the category of Defense and Security. The winners will be announced at a gala banquet known as the "Oscars of Photonics," in February 2013 at Photonics West. "The PPO HyperChannel is a natural complement to the defense and security industry's arsenal of high quality, high performance optical products," says CEO Olga Pawluczyk. P&P Optica remains committed to being a provider of high tech solutions for defense applications.

The PPO HyperChannel builds a hyper-cube of information containing both spatial and spectral data through simultaneous, non-scanning acquisition and resolution of over 200 individually identifiable spectral points. Additionally, all spectral data is obtained simultaneously so that data is not distorted in dynamic sampling environments. P&P's revolutionary modular system is built around the highly efficient Holographic Gel Gratings, with optimized transmission optics, and 2D detectors. The PPO HyperChannel's unrivaled functionality and configurability has enabled widespread applications for use, and will continue to spark further innovation.

The PPO HyperChannel Spectrometer is available for purchase as a complete solution bundled with P&P Optica's advanced spectroscopic data analysis software suite, Iris, and can be customized for specific applications.
