Mr. Capra's Educational Pursuits in Antarctica

Fuchs Foundation Antarctic Expedition 2010

Ocean Optics Joins the Adventure !!

Ocean_Optics_LogoHello there everyone ! I am very happy to announce that Ocean Optics has come on board and will be helping me in this expedition with the amazing Jaz Spectrometer. The equipment will be used to take detail spectra measurments in the Antarctic Surface as well as measurements of different ice spectra of reflectivity, absorption and therefore transmission.

Hopefully, this equipment will also help with the sunscreen experiments which are still under development due to their very delicate and difficult nature.

Ocean Optics is a diversified electro-optics technology company and a global leader in solutions for optical sensing – fundamental methods of measuring and interpreting the interaction of light with matter. Our jaz_spectroscopeextensive line of complementary technologies includes spectrometers, optical sensors, metrology instrumentation, light sources, sampling accessories, fibres and probes.

Our miniature optical sensing units for field measurements, lab analysis and remote sensing have enabled thousands of applications such as solar irradiance monitoring, oceanic research, air & gas analysis, water analysis, water quality control, soil analysis, PAR measurements, oxygen sensing, pH sensing, colour measurements and many more
