This high performance optical spectrometer, integrated with a cellular phone, can make optical spectroscopy accessible to everyone whereas the traditional optical spectrometers, used to measure the spectra of light, are usually bulky and expensive. The G-Fresnel Cell-phone Spectrometer is compact and affordable. Optical spectrometers have broad ranges of applications, such as breast cancer detection, monitoring surgical wounds and color analysis for assisting people with color blindness.
