#1. Collimating Lenses and Their Importance
Collimating lenses aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when configuring a spectrometer. But maybe they should be. Learn why.
#2. How to Set Up an Absolute Irradiance Measurement
In this video, we guide users through the steps needed to measure the absolute irradiance of sources including lamps and LEDs.
#3. How to Make Reflectance Measurements
This video guides users through the basics of diffuse reflectance and color measurements using Ocean Insight spectrometers.
#4. Shining a Light on Photons
In a video, poster and more, the humble photon gets its due. Follow its journey from particle to Ocean Insight spectrometer.
#5. New Software Development Kit
OceanDirect is a Software Development Kit enabling users to program custom solutions for Ocean Insight spectrometers.
How do photons make their way in an Ocean Insight spectrometer? We describe the path each photon takes, bringing us closer to our next insight. Download the poster ->
The photons used in spectroscopy encounter many components and undergo a variety of processes before registering as a spectrum on the screen. What happens to these photons once they enter an Ocean Insight spectrometer?
In this tutorial, we guide you through the steps to take when measuring the absolute irradiance of sources including lamps and LEDs. Learn how to calculate power output at each wavelength.
In this video, we guide users through the basic steps necessary to perform both diffuse reflectance and color measurements using Ocean Insight spectrometers and accessories.
