Photon etc. is a renowned Canadian-Quebec company, located in the heart of Montreal's innovative district, specializing in the design and manufacturing of hyperspectral and infrared imaging systems. Founded in 2003, our expertise in photonics allows us to provide innovative solutions to the most complex challenges of research and advanced industrial applications.
Scientists and industry alike turn to our expertise for the most advanced imaging and analysis instruments, whether it's to discover new materials for solar energy, see through living tissue, or obtain the best characterisation of an industrial product. This is reflected in the growing number of scientific publications that use our products for their research.
We focus our efforts on three specific sectors: industrial, advanced materials and life sciences.
As a manufacturer of high-sensitivity infrared cameras and hyperspectral systems, we offer complete ranges of customizable and modular equipment to revolutionize our customers' operations, such as the sorting of mining cores, plastics, and textiles.
Our ability to create custom solutions combined with our expertise in hyperspectral imaging has allowed us to develop a wide range of ultrafast hyperspectral systems (wide field and microscopy) and a tunable bandpass filter for research in the advanced materials sector.
With our expertise in infrared cameras and imaging systems, we have established ourselves as the leader in preclinical imaging in the second biological window (NIR-II). Our imagers offer a deep view of living tissue and superior contrast to traditional optical imagers.
Our goal is to provide in-depth understanding and insight into a complex world. We are working to create a better world by putting innovation and new technologies at the service of the planet and the people that inhabit it. Better solar panels, pre-clinical imagers to discover new cancer drugs, microplastic detection, and waste sorting are just a few of the possibilities our systems offer.
Simply put, we take the risk of thinking differently to ensure photonic innovation and partner satisfaction.
