The Centre for Advanced Photonics & Process Analysis (CAPPA) at CIT has just initiated work on a collaborative research programme in June with ProPhotonix and Tyndall National Institute. The project will be led by CAPPA and sees researchers at CIT collaborate with the Integrated Photonics Group at Tyndall National Institute. Together the CIT and Tyndall research team will work closely with ProPhotonix to develop a next generation light source for some of the company’s key target markets. The research is jointly funded by ProPhotonix and Enterprise Ireland under their Innovation Partnership Programme to support collaboration between industry and academia.
ProPhotonix designs and manufactures LED illumination solutions as well as produces laser modules. In addition, the company distribute laser diodes from key industry leaders like Opnext, Sony, QSI, Sanyo and Ondax. ProPhotonix has established a strong position in the machine vision sector and building on this reputation has significantly expanded its presence into the solar, semi-conductor and medical markets. ProPhotonix’s Irish operations are based in Little Island, just outside Cork city.
