2015 CLEO/Laser Focus World Innovation Award Winners

We are pleased to announce the following winners for the 2015 CLEO/Laser Focus World Innovation Awards.


TCSPC Analyzer

AUREA Technology
Analytical Instruments or Systems Category Winner

For the first “all-in-one” Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) analyzer with fully integrated picosecond laser source and novel time-to-digital-converter technologies that delivers ultra-high photon detection efficiency and low-dark-count-rate within the 400 nm to 1700 nm range in a compact package with an easy to use customer-centric graphical user interface.


 Inrad Optics
Optical Components Category

Stilbene crystals for neutron detection
For the development of large single crystals of stilbene--an organic scintillator that, when coupled with a photodetector, has superior performance for applications in fast neutron detection in a gamma background--and the successful transition of stilbene crystal growth methods from an R&D setting into low-rate commercial production.



Northrop Grumman - Cutting Edge Optronics
Lasers and Sources Category

Gigashot-HE all-diode-pumped Joule class laser system
The Gigashot-HE diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) Nd:YAG laser system outputs more than 2 J of 532 nm energy in each sub-10 ns pulse at 10 Hz with a near-field flat-top beam profile. Using long-life QCW pump laser diodes operating for more than 10 billion shots, this system is scalable to repetition rates greater than 100Hz and is an ideal pump source for Ti:Sapphire amplifiers, OPOs and OPCPAs, and for terawatt/petawatt high-energy science.

Join the winners of the 2015 CLEO/Laser Focus World Innovation Award as they showcase their award winning products.
