Organisation Description

OptoSci Limited is a high technology SME, established in 1994 by senior academics from Strathclyde and Heriot-Watt Universities to exploit innovative research from within the world renowned photonics divisions in these establishments. The Company’s activities are focussed on research, development and manufacture of photonics systems, components and instrumentation for the industrial and education markets. OptoSci is a leading producer of a unique range of innovative photonics educator kits, which are sold to universities, colleges, and industrial training centres worldwide. In addition, we offer a range of optoelectronic laboratory instruments which are designed or customised to clients research requirements, and are involved in several collaborative R&D programmes to develop specialised OEM optoelectronic instruments for application in the industrial measurement and environmental sensing markets (e.g. hydrocarbons, water, methane, etc.).

Product/Research Description

OptoSci is a leading producer of innovative optoelectronic systems, components and instrumentation for the international education, research, industrial and environmental markets. Current products include: Comprehensive and fully self-contained laboratory based teaching and training packages in optics, optoelectronics and optical communications for universities, colleges and training centres. Specialist design and manufacture of a range of custom photonics instrumentation products for R&D applications. Novel optical sensing systems for the industrial measurement and environmental sensing markets. These include a distributed system for monitoring and detecting methane levels in landfill sites, mines, and petroleum and gas installations, and another for sensing hydrocarbon and water for leak and spillage protection of pipelines, transport and storage systems.

New Products

Trial versions of our multi-point methane monitoring system have been installed and continue to be tested on a number of UK landfill sites. Further add-on educator kit modules to extend the application of the existing range of kits will continue to be introduced.

Main Markets

Academic and industrial teaching and research laboratories Worldwide coverage.

Services Offered

Contract research in photonics technology Custom design and development of optoelectronic systems and instrumentation

Collaboration Sought or Offered

OptoSci has considerable experience of participating in collaborative research projects both via UK schemes (LINK) and EU Initiatives (Framework Programmes). Our particular interests are in the design and development of optoelectronic interrogation, detection, and control systems, in particular for application in the industrial measurement and environmental sensing markets (e.g. hydrocarbons, water, methane, etc.). We welcome partnerships with system installers and end users operating in these markets, and our ultimate objective would be the commercial production of specialised OEM sub-systems for our partners.
