Assorted light source spectra
November 9, 2015
Plots below were acquired with a Verity EP200MSd scanning monochromator with 2x 100 micron slits (0.4 nm bandpass) and 2.5M Polymicro FVP600660710UVM cable (unterminated).
- The selected overlay in each plot is the approximate action spectrum for zooxanthellae isolated from the stony coral Favia, extrapolated from the 400-700 nm plot referenced in http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2007/10/review. Portions of the overlay outside this range are not meaningful
- Plots are corrected for photomultiplier tube response (Hamamatsu R928) but not fiber or grating loss. Absolute amplitude is uncalibrated; relative amplitude comparisons are meaningful only between plots with matching PMT voltages
- Wavelength scale accuracy is approximately +/- 1 nm in the 400-700 nm range
