Congratulations to NuSpot Technologies Team

Congratulations to Rick Hudson, CEO, and the NuSpot Technologies Team:  NuSpot Technologies, LLC announced receipt of a prestigious Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II ($1.5M) grant by the Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA).  This multi-year award will support continued development of a solid-state, monolithic device for generating a superresolved -or subwavelength- spot of electromagnetic radiation.  Dr. Paolo Batoni, NuSpot’s Chief Technology Officer, leads the project. 

Dr. Batoni noted, “We are honored to receive this award from DARPA and are grateful for the opportunity to proceed with the final phase in the development of our breakthrough technology and enable a variety of potential commercial applications.”  NuSpot’s emphasis is on exploiting this technology in areas related to additive manufacturing, sensing, and measurement as well as exploring emerging applications for the engineering of photons.  

This effort follows on the heels of a successful Phase I ($150,000) grant focused on theoretical investigations, simulations and preliminary fabrication testing.

“Our strength lies in our dynamic team and we and our collaborators look forward to moving into the next phase of this development,” said Rick Hudson, CEO of Nuspot Technologies. 

About NuSpot Technologies:

Founded in 2017 with its headquarters in Charlotte, NuSpot Technologies’ mission lies in the research and commercialization of cost-effective opto-electronic and micro-optics technologies whose implementation can be integrated into existing VLSI processes, and are scalable with wavelength. 


About DoD: DARPA’s SBIR and STTR Programs:

U.S. Congress established the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs 1982 and 1992, respectively. The SBIR program uses small business concerns (SBCs) to meet federal R&D needs, stimulate technological innovation, and increase private-sector commercialization of innovations derived from federal R&D, thereby increasing competition, productivity, and economic growth.

The STTR Program stimulates the partnership of ideas and technologies between innovative SBCs and research institutions through federally funded research or research and development, visit: to learn more.
