In September 2011 the Fund for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises in the scientific and technical field (Bortnik’s Fund) announced the results of the competition between more than 200 companies.
Bortnik’s Fund is a state-owned non-profit organization that supports Russian innovative companies and provides financing to Research and Development (R&D) and technology- and knowledge-intensive products development projects.
Tydex was determined one of the winners and took the second grant. The funding of Tydex project allows developing a spectroscopy device complex, based on Fabry–Pérot interferometer, and new optical components, and launching their manufacturing. This will result in extending Tydex product line for THz applications.
