Spectral Irradiance Using Avantes Solar Simulator

Posted on: July 28th, 2022

Conducted by: David Ademe, Avantes Inc. Theme: Solar Simulator/Irradiance Background/Applications: Spectral irradiance is the irradiance of a surface per unit frequency or wavelength, depending on whether the spectrum is taken as a function of frequency or of wavelength. The two forms have different dimensions: spectral irradiance of a frequency spectrum is measured in watts per…

Brochure: Raman Spectroscopy

Posted on: July 12th, 2022

Raman Spectroscopy and Avantes! Raman spectroscopy is a molecular measurement technique that characterizes the inelastic scattering of photons in covalently bound molecules. This scattering is then used to define what is known as the material’s molecular fingerprint, crystallinity, and other specifications. Because each material has a unique Raman spectrum, it is an ideal technique to…

Brochure: Spectroscopy Configurations for Fluorescence Applications

Posted on: June 27th, 2022

Fluorescence spectroscopy refers to the measurement of the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light of a different wavelength. In most cases, the emitted light is at a lower energy state but higher wavelength than the absorbed light. Fluorescence as a spectroscopy application technique is exploding with uses in many industries. It…

Improving the Future of Smart Agriculture with Spectroscopy

Posted on: June 24th, 2022

Climate change and population expansion have a direct impact on agriculture. An increasing number of people need to be fed but changing weather patterns can cause complete crops to fail. Inevitably, farms must produce more with less, and frequently under increasingly difficult conditions. Growing seasons are shorter, there are fewer resources such as clean water,…
