LI-COR LI-193 Underwater Spherical PAR Sensor
The LI-COR LI-193 Underwater Spherical Quantum sensor accurately measures photon flux from all directions and gives an added dimension to underwater PAR measurements.
- Uses computer-tailored filter glass to achieve the desired quantum response
- Calibration is traceable to NIST
- Features corrosion-resistant, rugged construction for use in up to 350m depths
The LI-COR LI-193 Underwater PAR Sensor gives an added dimension to underwater PAR measurements as it measures photon flux from all directions. This measurement is referred to as Photosynthetic Photon Flux Fluence Rate (PPFFR) or Quantum Scalar Irradiance. This is important, for example, when studying phytoplankton, which utilize radiation from all directions for photosynthesis. The LI-193 features a high sensitivity optical design and compact, rugged construction for use in freshwater or saltwater and pressures up to 493 psi or 350 meter depths.
