Debashis Chanda, a professor in UCF’s NanoScience Technology Center, recently received SONY Innovation Award for the year 2022. This is first such award to UCF.

The SONY Research Award program, which the honor is part of, is designed to foster international technological innovation.

The award from the multinational electronics corporation will fund the development of infrared night vision and thermal sensing camera technology for cell phones and consumer electronics.

The thermal sensing technology further can be used to inspect thermal signatures, such as faulty parts of windows or doors where heat is leaking, apart from defense and space exploration applications.
