Spectroscopy at Home

  • Light & Illumination
  • Irradiance
  • Handheld

Just like you, we’re adjusting to new ways of working outside of the lab or office. As our colleagues around the world demonstrate here, spectroscopy really knows no bounds.

What does working from home mean to you? Share your thoughts with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and use hashtag #spectroscopyathome. And the most creative folks can look forward to a free "virtual pizza". 

To the Ocean Insight team, it’s a chance to demonstrate how modular spectroscopy brings the spectrometer to the sample – whether it’s the coral in a home aquarium in Florida or a poolside sky in Marseille, France.

Daylight illuminance readings can vary widely, from 10,000-25,000 lux. On this cloudy day in France, the WaveGo handheld light measurement system measures slightly less than 19,000 lux.
