Ocean Optics provides spectral solutions for researchers and businesses addressing the world’s increasing energy demands, including tools for mining and exploration, development of renewable resources, and monitoring of energy production.
Characterizing materials via spectroscopy is critical to understanding exactly how we can make them, and sustainable energy technologies, better. The scientific community has really thrown its brainpower into this area.
As new mineral sources are found across the globe, there is a desire to accurately classify rock types at the point of mining as well as point of use. Ocean Optics offers spectral reflection systems for rapid determination of mineral composites in a non-destructive test.
Using an optical probe to simply shine light on the mineral surface, the observed spectral peaks and patterns can be correlated to one or more compounds within the rock. This can be used to verify suspected minerals before large-scale extraction at the mining site, and to re-verify before use in the desired process.
