Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Edinburgh, Photon Force is a multi-award-winning business with a mission to provide innovative, high quality, and accurate sensor technology to facilitate research, and ultimately enable next-generation products. Until now, single photon detection and timing capabilities have only been available as separate, bulky, and low-throughput pieces of equipment. Photon Force’s products help speed up research progress by streamlining these features into a single, simple unit, easily integrated into an existing lab setup. Our current cameras have been used for a wide range of exciting and revolutionary applications, such as video-rate fluorescence lifetime imaging, advanced LiDAR systems which can image through fog and even around corners, and neural imaging to support emerging brain-computer interface research.
Photon Force has very recently secured £1.8m in research and development grant funding which is aimed at supporting their next stage of growth and focus on developing their product range for a wider customer base and future revenue streams. With an existing interesting and diverse customer base, which includes Facebook, they have set strong foundations on which to build for the next stage of growth. With an existing, interesting and diverse customer base, which includes leading international research institutions; MIT, KCL and Tsinghua, they have set strong foundations on which to build for the next stage of growth.
