Founded in 2015, Tarsier Optics is commercializing “quantum camera” technology developed by Dr. Yan-hua Shih and licensed from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. While heavy, bulky lenses can magnify an image, they limit the field of view and cannot overcome the large distortions caused by air turbulence.  Tarsier is developing an imaging system that uses wide angle lenses and eliminates air turbulence distortions.
