CAPPA - Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis - Cork
What is CAPPA
CAPPA (Centre for Advanced Photonics & Process Analysis) applies photonics solutions to industry in a wide range of sectors, including medical devices and technologies, pharmaceutical manufacturing, food & beverage technologies and electronics and telecommunications. Photonics is the science of generating, controlling and detecting light, and is a key enabling technology underpinning many different application areas.
Examples addressed by CAPPA include advanced imaging & spectroscopy – a suite of powerful spectroscopy and microscopy techniques covering a wide wavelength range (including FTIR, Raman, UV/ Vis) providing detailed information on chemical composition, active ingredient distribution, optical device dynamics, etc. It can be used to monitor processes, detect counterfeit products, aid root cause analysis, and investigate novel materials.
