Collaborate: Single-Photon Camera

By April 28, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Portland State University’s single-photon camera technology, which uses laser pulses to time-tag individual photons for high-resolution imaging. This innovative technology captures photon timestamp histograms to achieve accurate depth estimation while reducing computational expense. It also offers other benefits, such as efficient depth estimation and adaptive median convergence.

There are several applications for this technology, including 3D scanning and mapping, autonomous vehicles, machine vision systems, augmented and virtual reality, and robotics. The global 3D scanning market size was worth $3.72 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $16.66 billion by 2030.

Portland State University’s single-photon camera technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the Portland State University team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
