nanoLambda, Inc., an advanced nano sensor startup, notes that its spectrumsensorâ„˘ sample is now available to potential customers and development partners for alpha test, with more broad availability expected in the second half 2011. The spectrumsensorâ„˘ is described by the company as the worldâ€™s smallest spectrometer-on-a-chip, which can be used not only for bio-chemical detection and wearable health monitoring, but also for accurate color and light measurement of consumer electronics devices.
Examples include, but are not limited to, camera, TV or LED lightings to enable accurate and consistent colors across devices and applications.
Bill Choi, CEO of nanoLamda, notes â€śWe learned from the mantis shrimp, which has arguably the most complicated visual system of any animal on Earth. The mantis shrimp has 12 color channels ranging from ultra-violet to infra-red, and can even see both linear and circular polarized light, which is remarkable. Humans only have 3 color channels. Using nanotechnology and the brain power of intelligent software, we are trying to catch up with this little guyâ€™s vision capabilities.â€ť
