|Trichromatic Color Analyser|
Trichromatic Colour Analyser (TCA) is the first distributable software system that turns scanners into colorimeters. It was created as part of the improved method for analysing and identifying traditional Thai colours, being described to some extent in "Complete Study of Traditional Thai Colors Used in Mural Paintings. Traditional Thai Color Name Dictionary”, published by Wiley and Sons in 'Color Research and Application' Journal. The initial software was developed to a full multifunctional colorimetric system called 'TCA LabPack' that includes Epson GT-20000 scanner, configured computer and software package. Although the software and system are described in 3 papers related to the Thai Color Naming Project, the algorithms and code remain proprietary and are protected by copyright.
TCA does not claim to do more than it does and is not just a story on a paper; TCA is a real product, which can be seen and tested. It is used in several projects and is under continuous improvement and development. More informations about this system can be found at: www.trichromaticity.com

|Alternative Way of Teaching
As Head of the Ink Testing Laboratory, Dr. Katemake used the Innovative Teaching Fund received from Faculty of Science for alternative way of teaching as follows:
The awards were organized to be given for the 3 best movies: 6000 THB for first place, 4000 THB for second place and 3000 THB for third place. The jury was composed by 2 members: Dr. Pichayada Katemake and Dr. Eng. Razvan Ion Preda. The final decision was to reward only 2 movies, both with 6500 THB each. The 2 movies have complementary qualities that determined the jury to take this decision.
