For more than 80 years, Saint-Gobain Crystals has been devoted to a single, defining mission: to engineer diverse, high-quality materials that transform technologies and empower a better world.
Through state-of-the-art R&D facilities, robust industrial-scale production capabilities, and a passionate team of extraordinary individuals, Saint-Gobain Crystals has consistently delivered on that mission. Our achievements include life-saving medical technologies, game-changing security capabilities and materials that have enabled revolutionary research — on this world and beyond. Since 1996, Saint-Gobain Crystals has provided scintillation detectors and materials for space missions such as the 2001 Mars Odyssey, the 2011 Curiosity Mars Rover, and the 2015 CALET Calorimetric Electron Telescope.
At Saint-Gobain Crystals, our team of researchers and engineers comes through the door each day ready to drive materials engineering forward in pursuit of advanced capabilities, forward-thinking technology, and a more fruitful future. With advanced techniques for harnessing the strength and precision of crystalline structures, we develop the materials that are powering the technologies of tomorrow.
This combination of solid science and bold ideas has allowed us to develop an industry-leading portfolio of high performance, high-reliability products including synthetic sapphire armor, precision scintillation crystals, X-ray monochromator crystals and epitaxy substrates made of garnet.
We work closely with our clients to so they can take advantage of these innovative products and advanced capabilities — offering the support to develop ideas, the expertise to impact industries, and the vision to change the world.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.

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.
