Check out Phasetech Spectroscopy

Prof. Martin Zanni and Dr. Chris Middleton have formed a company, PhaseTech Spectroscopy, to provide multidimensional mid-infrared and visible spectrometers to the scientific research community. The spectrometers are based on pulse shaping technology developed in the Zanni laboratory. See the PhaseTech website, for more information.
