EU Attract grant for camera that sees chemical composition
A consortium of DIFFER, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and DIFFER spin-off Chromodynamics has received a €100,000 grant to develop RAMANTIS, a camera system that can see the chemical composition of materials and biological tissues. RAMANTIS will be able to observe and analyze up to 10 different wavelengths of light at the same time. This will make it possible to perform real-time 2D Raman Imaging, a process that previously took seconds to days.
