Advanced Photonix Takes New Order From Optos

October 31, 2000|BARBARA MURPHY

Advanced Photonix Inc. in Camarillo says it has received a $360,000 order to provide its cooled detectors to British company Optos.

The detectors are a key component in the Optos Panoramic 200 Ophthalmoscope. This order brings total orders from Optos to $560,000 for the calendar year.

The eye-care scope is used by ophthalmologists and optometrists for the early detection and prevention of eye disease.

"The technology incorporated in the Panoramic 200 utilizes a low-powered laser beam which scans the retina two-dimensionally," said Brock Koren, Advanced Photonix's president and chief executive. "Light reflected from the retina is detected and transformed into a digital computer image."

The order was taken by Advanced Photonix's German distributor, AMS Technologies GmbH.

Advanced Photonix designs and manufactures silicon photodetectors and other optoelectronic products.
