Nearfield Acoustic Holography has been a subject of study for a long time. A well as the research challenges, we have been involved right from the beginning with the very successful start-up venture Sorama, which was founded by former PhD student Rick Scholte in 2009. The start-up phase was passed successfully by winning 1st and 2nd STW valorisation grants of 25 kEuro and 200 KEuro respectively, as well as by several joint patents. Sorama, which uses an acoustic camera and various scanning facilities, is growing rapidly in size and for that reason has recently moved from the Mechanical Engineering building, but ties are still close.  More information about Sorama you will find at
