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 [2].

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.
