The company LDI Innovation has been established in early 2013 to keep focus on innovative developments of new products and services based on accumulated knowledge, experience and intellectual property of the founders in environmental, industrial, bio-medical and security applications of photonics techniques (see Projects for more details). The Company manufactures lasers and laser- and spectroscopy based instrumentation. The principal staff of LDI Innovation initiated several key product concepts and designs developed from innovative idea to product stage and commercialized by dedicated companies. In particular, the technique of Spectral Fluorescent Signatures (SFS) has resulted in a family of instruments for real-time analysis of organic compounds in various environments.
The SFS analyzer Fluo-Imager® marketed by the company Skalar Analytical b.v. has been proved successful in environmental assessment of water quality and monitoring oil refinery waste water.
The SFS analyzer NTX2000 marketed by the company Nartest AS has been validated as a highly reliable instrument for identification of illicit drugs.
The technology of remote sensing of terrestrial and aquatic targets with airborne hyperspectral LiDARs marketed by the company PinPoint Inc. has demonstrated outstanding capabilities in locating oil pollution on land and sea and minor leaks of the pipelines.
The Company employs experienced R&D and engineering staff, most with advanced degrees in science, engineering and software. Core developers of LDI Innovation contributed to the number of completed international, FP6 and ongoing FP7 European projects in corresponding technology domains.
