Presented at the annual meeting on Photochemistry 2022 at Kyoto University, the award was earned for their “Development of Ultra-Sensitive Modular Fluorescence Spectrometer with Time-Resolved Function and its Applications.”
The Japanese Photochemistry Association, established in 1976, is an academic society with more than 1,000 individual members and 43 supporting members, that conducts basic research and a wide range of applied technologies in the fields of photochemistry and phototechnology.
The Photochemistry Society of Japan's Technology Award is given to individuals who have made outstanding achievements in the development or industrialization of photochemistry-applied technologies, who have been recommended by other members/directors. This year's Technology Award was recommended by Professor Naoto Tamai, Faculty of Science and Technology, Kwansei Gakuin University.
“HORIBA's achievement in commercialization of the time-resolved Fluorescence measurement system called NAES for the first time in Japan was very significant,” said Professor Tamai of Kwansei Gakuin University. “The company has also developed and launched a wide-range modular fluorescence spectrophotometer in the UV, visible, and near-infrared regions, and has further improved this spectrophotometer by integrating time-resolved functions into it.”
