Olivier Daigle, recipient of the People's Choice Award for discovery of the year given by Quebec Science magazine, has launched a new company with his partner, Marie-Eve Ducharme. Nuvu Cameras will commercialize their EMCCD camera, which is considered to be the most sensitive in the world.

Olivier Daigle designed the camera as part of his PhD studies in astrophysics at the Universit? de Montr?al Department of Physics. The camera was conceived under the direction of Claude Carignan and Photon etc inc., a research and development company that specializes in photonic measurement and analysis instruments. N?v? Camēras' launch comes after four years of research and development in uncharted territory. Thanks to substantial noise reduction, the camera can quadruple the effectiveness of current telescopes in applications requiring either short exposure or low levels of light.
