Orono Spectral Solutions Inc. of Bangor received the Tibbetts Award for excellence in small business innovation research in May at the White House, according to an article in The Weekly. Carl Tripp, who works in the University of Maine’s Laboratory for Surface Science and Technology, co-founded the company in 2004 after realizing his research done at UMaine on infrared-based sensors for the detection of chemical and biological warfare agents in water had the potential for military and commercial product development.
