FocalSpec is a privately held Finnish high tech company offering laboratory level measurement precision for online quality control and manufacturing line process optimization. Our product range consists of sensors, 2D profilers and 3D at-line scanners for metal, electronics, plastics and medical industries as well as for systems integrators. Our headquarters is located in Oulu, Finland and it operates globally through its subsidiary in Atlanta, USA and a skilled network of integrators and distribution partners. Our innovation is built on line confocal imaging (LCI) ensuring the most accurate measurement results without the limitations of the traditional measurement methods. Our technology works even on the most challenging surfaces such as dark matt, glossy and transparent surfaces. There is no speckle noise nor interference and a sub-micron measurement accuracy is guaranteed be the samples moving or not.


Measurement Science and Technology

Measurement Science and Technology publishes articles on new measurement techniques and associated instrumentation. Subject coverage includes the theory, practice and application of measurement in physics, chemistry, engineering and the environmental and life sciences from inception to commercial exploitation. Publications in the journal should emphasize the novelty of reported methods, characterize them and demonstrate their performance using examples or applications.



PIXAPP is the world’s first open-access Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) Assembly and Packaging Pilot line, and helps users exploit the breakthrough advantages of PIC technologies. PIXAPP consists of a highly-interdisciplinary team of Europe’s leading industrial & research organisations, and provides users with single-point access to PIC assembly and packaging. The Pilot Line Gateway Office is PIXAPP's the easy-access interface for external users, and is located at the Tyndall National Institute, in Ireland. The Gateway is managed by an experienced team, including technical experts to review incoming user requests, and project managers to organise the PIXAPP supply chain. PIXAPP bridges the ‘valley of death’ often associated with moving from prototyping to low-volume fabrication, by giving companies an easy-access route to transferring R&D results to the market.



IEEE Sensors Council

The IEEE Sensors Council focuses on the theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing and application of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical, and biological phenomena. With an emphasis on the electronics, physics, and reliability aspects of sensors and integrated sensor-actuators, the Council sponsors well-recognized, international conferences and publications.



Integrated photonics has become critical to life sciences. Although successful demonstrations, the gating factor for wider adoption is limited in resource capacity. PIX4life, a European project, enables the production of low-cost, highly reproducible, and scalable products, aiming to lower barriers to entry for testing and validating biophotonics concepts. 



MIRPHAB (Mid InfraRed PHotonics devices fABrication for chemical sensing and spectroscopic applications) provides a platform to ensure the bridging between technology and component development and the commercial availability of such components avoiding the risks associated with the introduction of new disruptive technologies.
