Disclosure of grants and contributions awards

Fiscal Year 2017-2018

3rd quarter

Recipient Name:Nüvü Caméras Inc.
Location:Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Purpose:EMCCD (electron multiplying charge-coupled device) detectors are highly sensitive cameras that take images in low-light conditions using photon signals. This technology extends the boundaries of what is observable. Canadian EMCCD technology is recognized internationally for its unparalleled imaging sensitivity. The main space applications for this technology are astronomy and the detection of space debris. A potential terrestrial application is biomedical imaging. The purpose of the Nüvü Caméras project is to improve the newest large-format EMCCD, which has a larger field of view (the area covered by an image), primarily by increasing the new EMCCD's frame rate.
Comments:The amount allocated covers more than one fiscal year.
