The opportunities that science will provide to us are endless. Investing in science and knowledge is key to our future. The current COVID19 crisis has demonstrated that the only way of facing challenges is science. We are firm believers in science. We truly believe that knowledge has to be accessible to the society and everyone should be able to get all the benefits out of it.Learn More
What is an innovative SME?
A Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise has R&D intensive activities when it has complied with one of the following circumstances:
- SME has received public grants for the last three years.
- SME has proved its innovative character by developing a patent.
- SME has demonstrated its innovative capacity.
Doitplenoptic innovative capacity
Our goal is to research, develop, scale, produce and commercialize products, processes, services, and procedures related to bidimensional (2D) and tridimensional (3D) optical images with an emphasis on plenoptic images or lightfield through the contract of use license exclusive and exploitation of patent rights and know-how between the University of Valencia, the National University of Colombia and DOITPLENOPTIC.
Since our constitution, the company has received different public grants:
- CREATEC: the objective of this grant is to promote innovative technology-based entrepreneurship, business diversification, economic growth, and the creation of quality employment in the business ecosystem of the Valencian Community.
- NEOTEC: the general aim is to finance the start-up of new business projects, which require the use of technologies or knowledge developed from research activity.
We are developing the first plenoptic eyepieces in the market to convert any microscope into 3D microscopes. This eyepiece can be used in different fields like biomedicine and clinical research, aerospace, and automotive industries.
Doitplenoptic will bring you very soon the first plenoptic ocular: DOIT 3D MICRO. This device is placed in the microscope eyepiece port and allows you to convert your microscope into a 3D microscope. No matter which brand you are using, if you need 3D information, you get it right away by inserting our plenoptic eyepiece!
DOIT 3D Micro and Lightfield technology
Plenoptic photography, also known as integral imaging or lightfield imaging, consists of recording multiple perspectives of a 3D scene through an array of lenses. This way, the three-dimensional information is stored with single shotD allowing to register 3d images in real-time.DOIT® (Digital Optical Imaging Technology) is based on a paradigm shift in the capture of the plenoptic information. Conventional plenoptic systems capture low-resolution images close to the lens array; DOIT’s technology does it virtually at infinity with an improved lateral and axial resolution and higher depth of field.
Over this paradigm shift, DOIT® has developed a universal, versatile, affordable, and handy device: The DOIT 3D Micro eyepiece.
- DOIT 3D Micro eyepiece can be used with any microscope,
- Thanks to DOIT®, microscopists get seamless integration working with the objectives in the nosepiece,
- Zero complexity, little investment, great results.
El Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial, E.P.E. (CDTI) and the NEOTEC program grant our company the funding to carry out the project “PLENOPTIC EYEPIECE FOR 3D DIGITAL IMAGE“ for an amount of 250.000 €.
The CDTI-E.P.E. is a Public Business Entity dependent on the Ministry of Science and Innovation. It promotes innovation and technological development in Spanish companies.
The CDTI aim is to contribute to the improvement of the technological level of Spanish companies through the development of the following activities :
- The technical-economic evaluation and granting of public aid for innovation to develop R&D&I projects made by companies.
- Management and promotion of Spanish participation in international technological cooperation programs.
- Promotion of international transfer of business technology and support services for technological innovation.
- Support for the creation and consolidation of technology-based companies.
NEOTEC AND THE PROJECT
The Neotec grant is an aid granted by CDTI of up to 250,000€. Its general aim is to finance the start-up of new business projects, which require the use of technologies or knowledge developed from research activity .
With the project “Plenoptic eyepieces for 3D digital imaging”, we will develop 3D imaging systems based on lightfield technology. With this imaging technology, the plenoptic eyepiece is an extremely versatile imaging device that allows you to convert any optical instrument with an eyepiece port into a 3D digital imaging instrument.
We will develop the commercial version of a plenoptic eyepiece for microscopy and the high resolution customized version for specific microscopes. We will accelerate the processing time of the modules and develop new algorithms for image processing, reconstruction, visualization, and analysis based on physical fundamentals with the support of artificial intelligence.
Another great news for Doitplenoptic this summer! The Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness (Institut Valencià de Competitivitat Empresarial – IVACE) which mission is “to manage the Generalitat’s industrial policy and to support companies in the areas of innovation, entrepreneurship, internationalization and investment attraction […]”, has chosen Doitplenoptic’s 2020 ~€100K project within the CREATEC grant in its 2019 call. The objective of this grant is to promote innovative technology-based entrepreneurship, business diversification, economic growth, and the creation of quality employment in the business ecosystem of the Valencian Community, supporting the development of companies whose activities are based on the exploitation of knowledge and technology.

Funded by the European Regional Development Fund
The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF or FEDER in Spanish) aims to strengthen socio-economic cohesion within the European Union by correcting imbalances between its regions. The ERDF focuses its investments on several key priority areas. This is known as “thematic concentration”: innovation and research, digital program, support for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), low carbon economy.
Stay tuned for more information about the details of the granted project
