Photonics West 2006 SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 23, 2006--Centice Corporation, the pioneer of a next generation sensor technology, today announced that Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in spectroscopy instruments, has selected Centice's innovative patent-pending Multimodal Multiplex Spectroscopy (MMS) technology for its new spectrometer platform. As a result of this agreement, Newport will be the first company to offer a UV-Vis spectrometer based on Centice's MMS technology--a breakthrough spectrometer design that simultaneously samples 500 optical channels through a wide area aperture instead of a through a narrow slit as with conventional designs.

"It's exciting for Centice to be collaborating with Newport because their understanding of the research customer, especially those that need cutting-edge spectroscopy solutions, has been invaluable throughout the development of this breakthrough product," said Steve Kaye, President and CEO of Centice. "We believe that our MMS technology fundamentally changes the way spectrometers operate by delivering unparalleled measurement sensitivity while holding sub-nanometer resolution, and we look forward to working with Newport to extend their range of spectrometers based on our patent-pending solution."

"At Newport our mission is to be the premier global resource for customers that need solutions to make, manage and measure light. We believe that by implementing Centice's MMS technology, we will be able to offer a next generation spectroscopy solution that well exceeds the measurement sensitivity of a conventional dispersive spectrometer," said Dennis Werth, Vice President of Newport's Precision Components and Systems Group

At Photonics West, Newport will demonstrate its initial offering - a fully integrated, compact system available in a 190-500nm spectral range, with a 0.6nm resolution, a wide area aperture, and cooled back-thinned CCD. The system will be demonstrated in the San Jose McEnry Convention Center, in Newport's booth #1307, January 24 - 26, in San Jose, CA.
