While working with microscopy in the 1990s, Peter became aware of the limitations of conventional microscopy. Being familiar with holography, Peter started investigating the possibility of creating a holographic microscope. Such a microscope would overcome a number of limitations associated with conventional microscopy.
Peter meets Mikael
Through the physics department at Lund University Peter was introduced to Mikael in 2001. After an initial pre-study, Mikael and Peter soon became involved in building a holographic microscope.
The M1 prototype of the HoloMonitor was built by a collaboration between the Competence Center for Circuit Design (CCCD) at Lund University and the founders of PHI. The success of the collaboration led to that PHI was founded in 2004.
After building a second prototype in 2008, the HoloMonitor M3 was internationally launched in 2011. In the same year, PHI received a governmental grant from Vinnova to build the 4th HoloMonitor generation. The incubator adapted HoloMonitor M4 was launched in early 2013.
