CappSci’s Inventors Contest Software Winner Dr. Prasoon Diwakar’s Laser Detector
In December, the winners of the 2016 CappSci’s Inventors contest software were announced distributing $1 million to 10 inventors over a five-year period. Through the Skild platform, the administrators of the contest chose to single out one finalist who has been making an exceptional pursuit with his invention - Dr. Prasoon Diwakar."" His invention is a Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Detector (Say that five times fast). Bringing science to the people Diwakar is a research scientist who has dabbled with the use of lasers for quite some time. Needless to say, lasers are not new to him. When he was an intern at CNR-TEMPE he studied soot formations in fames using laser diagnostics. This later motivated his epic laser creation – The Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Detector.
