Paul Webster Awarded the 2012 Martin Walmsley Fellowship

October 30, 2012

Paul Webster was awarded the 2012 Martin Walmsley Fellowship for Technological Entrepreneurship from the Ontario Centres of Excellence. Mr. Webster’s inline coherent imaging (ICI) technology that he developed as part of his PhD studies, allows direct measurement and control of depth in laser welding and drilling. It offers the capability to improve quality and safety and reduce manufacturing costs in products as diverse as solar panels, batteries, cars and jet engines, and eventually in health care applications such as medical implants and surgery on human tissue.

The award provides $100,000 in seed funding over the next two years to bring the commercial product to market.
