Prism Awards

Celebrating its 11th year, the Prism Awards recognize industrial innovation in photonics in multiple categories; 120 companies from 15 countries applied for this year’s awards. Winners will be announced at SPIE Photonics West 2019 in San Francisco, California (US) in February.

This year the awards add two new categories this year: Transportation and Vision Technologies. The Prism Awards continue to reflect the rich growth, exciting developments, and technical innovation in optics and photonics

Newer companies such as RedShift BioAnalytics, aJile Systems, and Double Helix Optics — a 2016 SPIE Startup Challenge champion and recent winner of Luminate’s accelerator program and $1 million prize — will share the distinction of being finalists alongside photonics giants such as Nikon, Trumpf, Leica, and Hamamatsu.
