Spectrometry and radiometry in agrophotonic context
Whether it comes from the sun, artificial sources or a mixture of both, the energy used for photosynthesis is called “Photosynthetically Active Radiation” (PAR). The PAR radiation measurement provides a reliable way of predicting the photosynthetic response of a plant without regard to the spectrum of the light source. We have developed expertise in the characterization and optimization of lighting in closed environments for plant production as well as the production of micro and macro algae.
Sensors and probes
Sensors and optical probes are obvious solutions for non-destructive physiological measurements. Typically the industry proceeds destructively with long and expensive chemical or physical means to obtain this kind of information. To circumvent this problem, the use of spectroscopy, or spectrometry, allows physiological measurements by studying the interaction of matter with light radiation by transmission or diffusion. Our experts will help you develop instruments and non-destructive methods of biophotonic measurements.
UV radiation and light quality measurements for humans
Ultraviolet light is used for disinfecting objects or sterilizing food. We have developed skills in the use of light for the destruction of pathogenic elements as well as for the safety and comfort of workers.
