Xerox Corporation researchers received R&D Magazine's Top 100 innovation award today in Chicago—one of six recent technology industry awards recognizing the company's research and innovation in color science and advanced document systems and services. Xerox will accept the award for the LED-based embedded spectrophotometer, marking it as one of the most innovative ideas of the year, according to the magazine.

Xerox research teams also received awards from the Product Development and Management Association, the Association for Sensor Technology, the American Chemical Society, the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award Partnership, and the annual World Investment Conference at La Baule, France.

Next week Xerox Corporation will be formally named Outstanding Corporate Innovator for 2006 by the Product Development & Management Association, the premier global advocate for product development and management professionals. Xerox was cited by PDMA for employing "a very broad range of highly disciplined exploratory and planning processes while still maintaining a creative and risk-taking environment and culture." Vandebroek will accept the award on Xerox's behalf Oct. 23 during the association's annual conference.

In June at the La Baule World Investment Conference in France, Xerox was presented an award for the innovative research being conducted at the Xerox Research Centre Europe. Xerox was one of three corporations honored for its investment in technology in Europe. Researchers at XRCE were cited for shaping the document of the future, helping people move freely from paper to digital worlds, and making documents smarter using advanced content analysis and data mining.

In addition, a team of researchers from Xerox's Wilson Research Center in Webster, N.Y., won two prestigious awards for their innovation inside a light-emitting diode (LED) spectrophotometer that enables Xerox production color printers to calibrate themselves to ensure every color print comes out exactly the same, every time. The award was presented by the Association of Sensor Technology.

Finally, a team of researchers from Xerox Research Centre of Canada won two awards for Xerox's patented EA (emulsion aggregation) toner, microparticles of "dry ink" that are fused on paper to form the words and images in a xerographic copy or print. The awards were presented by the American Chemical Society and the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award Partnership.
