Out now: Newsletter 18
The UV part of the solar spectrum can be divided into a range of wavelengths. Whether it is UVA, UVB or UVE you would like to measure depends on various factors. Newsletter 18 features an article that explains the basics and helps you to find the right instrument for your UV measurement study. It offers practical information, reports from different events and examples of applications of our products around the world.
An application example close to our home comes from the test site of the PVMD group of the Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands, where a pyranometer is deployed for their studies into solar cell technologies.
Thanks to Kipp & Zonen’s US office, NEON (the National Ecological Observatory Network) has selected the PQS 1 PAR quantum sensor for their new network of monitoring stations in 20 eco-climatic domains across the USA to accurately measure PAR. The article on page 6 of this newsletter explains why and how NEON integrates the PAR data and how they ensure accurate and consistent measurements.
Furthermore, in this newsletter we report from the Brewer inter-comparison in Huelva and present the winner of the 2011 Kipp & Zonen Award. We close with an impressive fact; Kipp & Zonen instruments are incorporated in the world’s highest meteo station, on Mount Everest.
