TecnOpto selected as finalist of the Edmund Optics 2016 Educational Award


edu-16-sheildTecnOpto was selected as a finalist of the 2016 Educational Award of the company Edmund Optics.

The selection was made on the basis of a proposed project of building a programmable optical microscope with different Fourier transform filtering operations performed in real time from a computer with a LCoS display. This way we are able to reproduce classical and novel microscopy techniques without moving elements in the optical system.

The complete list of winners and finalists can be found in: link
