Spectrogon derives its origin partly from research conducted at the Royal Institute of Technology, a leading Swedish technical university, and partly from research and development projects at AGA Innovation Center. AGA Innovation Center comprised of laboratories for long-term research and development of AGA AB, a major Swedish industrial group.
During the late 1960's and early 1970's several research programs were directed towards electro-optics. In 1980 the AGA Group changed its strategy and brought together the various high technology and electro-optics businesses to form a new group, Pharos AB. AGA Innovation Center's thin film optics projects where transferred to a new subsidiary of Pharos, AGA Optical, which eventually became Spectrogon in 1984. Spectrogon AB became an independent company on June 28, 1991, when the existing management organised an employee buyout.

Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
