Technology Transfer

It’s about the data—and innovating technology and enabling scientific research and discovery. That’s our focus. And that’s why we’re trusted collaborators—successful, accomplished technology-transfer partners—who can help you transform next-generation measurement technology into a commercial product.

For example, we partnered with the University of Rochester Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) to commercialize the ROSS Streak Camera for energy research and defense applications. Our partnership with the University of Rochester LLE continues, and we’ve also successfully developed an X-ray Framing Camera (for the capture of 2D spatially time-resolved frames or 1D spectrally resolved images of target features).

Sydor Technologies has also partnered with the Brookhaven National Lab, and helped develop and commercialize X-ray Strip Detectors (for time-resolved low energy experiments) and Diamond Beam Position Monitors (for high-flux white beams and low-flux monochromatic beams). Some of our other collaborations include partnerships with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for the commercialization of Fast CCD (for the study of fast dynamic processes) and Spectro CCD (for energy dispersive spectroscopy applications). And most recently a collaboration with Cornell University to develop and commercialize Keck-PAD (for the study of fast irreversible processes).

We know how to create value for inventors and laboratories using intellectual property—and how to successfully commercialize the possibilities and help you innovate to get the data you need, and more…

Custom Engineering

Whatever measurement capabilities your experiments demand, Sydor Instruments can provide custom engineering to enable scientific discovery and help deliver the data you need.

Off-the-shelf components sometimes may not perform the diagnostics or measurements or precisely suit the applications or environments you’re exploring—we can help. Whether designing a custom streak camera, or intensifying a COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) CCD camera to meet the specific needs of your research and application, Sydor Technologies can help determine your requirements, and design and deliver custom electro-optic solutions that best suit the diagnostic and imaging requirements for your research and applications.

Software Development

As a trusted collaborator and technology-transfer partner, we understand how complex experiments and measurements often require more sophisticated analytical instruments—and software. That’s why we offer custom software design services to help you graph, model, and analyze data more efficiently and effectively. Our custom software solutions span a broad spectrum of applications.

For example, we’ve created solutions for ballistic imaging applications, both via the IRIS software and via embedded applications to drive data to external devices. Our Diamond Beam Monitors and associated electronics employ data transfer devices to plug and play with industry standard GUIs, like EPICS. The Sydor Technologies ROSS_App is used for our streak cameras, but also independently, as the powerful scripting language behind it gives our customers the ability to customize quickly and cost-effectively—and we have users running thousands of scripts for external image analysis, feedback control, data manipulation and more.

Installation, Training & Support

As leading innovators, trusted collaborators, and accomplished technology-transfer partners, we know what it takes to install a comprehensive, integrated system, and train people how to use it productively and efficiently. We can work side-by-side with your staff to ensure a seamless and timely installation. We can also provide complete documentation (for production diagnostics systems) and provide your staff with technical manuals and comprehensive training to help increase productivity (and lower your total cost of ownership). And when it comes to support, Sydor Technologies service engineers can help you improve the consistency, accuracy and reliability of your testing. Of course, we also provide timely support for no-nonsense troubleshooting, quick replacements, and timely upgrades.
