Experior and the University of Derby Collaborate on the Development of Web-Linked Optical Spectrometers.
Experior Micro Technologies Ltd are proud to announce their collaboration with the Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering at the University of Derby for the development of a robust optical spectrometer solution for horticultural applications. The spectrometer will be able to measure optical power densities over the over 300nm - 1µm wavelength optical region and relay high-resolution spectral measurement data via 3G mobile telephone networks to the companies’ Irrisense web-portal for display to end-users. The sensor will enable horticulturists, ecologists and plant scientists to evaluate the effect of light spectral density on plant performance with a view optimising crop performance using LED lighting in controlled environmental agriculture applications.
