About Spectrecology

Mike Morris inventor of worl'd first miniature spectrometerSpectrecology started in 2007 when its founder, Mike Morris, resigned as President Of Ocean Optics. Mike was the founder of Ocean Optics in 1989, and led the company through two private equity investments, two acquisitions, the start of Ocean Thin Films and the sale of the company to Halma Plc in 2004.

Ocean Optics began with an SBIR grant from the Department of Energy to make a fiber optic pH sensor as part of an instrument designed to study the role of the oceans in global warming.  While designing the pH-monitoring instrument, Mike and his partner Roy Walters wanted to incorporate with their sensor a spectrometer small enough to fit onto a buoy and were surprised to discover none existed. So, they built their own. In 1992, the Mike & Roy filled a substantial need in the research community and changed the science of spectroscopy forever by creating a breakthrough technology: a miniature fiber optic spectrometer -- nearly 1,000 times smaller at 1/10 the cost of conventional systems.

By April 1992, just 30 days after the successful completion of Phase II of the SBIR grant, Mike introduced the S1000 -- "The World's First Miniature Fiber Optic Spectrometer."  As a result of the dramatic reduction in size and cost of optical sensing systems, applications once deemed too costly or technologically impractical using conventional spectrometers were not only feasible, but easy!

Now more than 20 years later, Spectrecology & Ocean Optics have placed almost 200,000 systems worldwide and enabled thousands of different applications -- from cancer detection and color matching to plasma monitoring and particle size analysis. Our spectrometers have been specified everywhere from research vessels in the Gulf of Mexico to the Mars rover that just landed. 

Spectrecology is here to solve problems! .

We sell Ocean Optics, Ocean thin Films, and other major brands of photonics and optical sensing hardware, and we develop new applications and new products.  But, our favorite products are the beautiful quartz cells and cuvettes from Starna!. These are highly functional and exquisitely made pieces with exceptional optical clarity. There are so many varieties we designed our website around a picture atlas concept. We now sell cuvettes all SBIR pH sensor cruise on RV Bellowsaround the world.

Mike is still active at the Director level for Ocean Optics, Wasatch Photonics and Prospect Photonics and continues to develop new technologies in oxygen sensors, multi-spectral imaging and optical sensors.
