A new add-on module for Ocean
Optics’ (Dunedin, FL) SpectraSuite
Spectrometer Operating Software allows
users of the company’s miniature
spectrometers and Jaz optical sensing
systems to calculate Photosynthetically
Active Radiation (PAR), an important
parameter for evaluating the effect of
light on plant growth. SpectraSuite-PAR uses the absolute irradiance spectrum (captured by the spectrometer)
of the light incident on plants and other samples and conveniently
converts the irradiance values from μW/cm2 (microwatts per
square centimeter) to μmol/m2/s (micromoles per square meter per
second), the measurement unit more commonly used for PAR analysis.
