Instrument and equipment

  • High precision ground spectrometer ASD FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res

The FieldSpec? 4 Hi-Res Ground Spectrometer is the latest flagship product of ASD in the United States and can be used in a variety of applications from remote sensing, crop monitoring, forest research to industrial lighting measurement, oceanographic research and mineral exploration. Spectral resolution 3nm @ 700nm, 8nm @2100nm.


  • Infrared thermal imaging camera DM60

The DM60 thermal imaging camera will be used for thermal testing and related fields, and can detect temperature changes ranging from -40 °C to 2000 °C down to 0.02 °C.

  • UV/visible spectrophotometer GE Ultrospec 7000

The UV-Vis spectrophotometer is a new technology introduced by the meta-analyzer. It is a powerful technology with a wavelength range of 190-1100 nm. It is a general-purpose instrument in the field of water and wastewater analysis. The application range includes municipal and industrial wastewater. , drinking water, process water, surface water, cooling water and boiler feed water. The Ultrospec 7000 features a 2nm bandwidth dual beam with a wavelength range of 190-1100 nm.

  • Portable photosynthetic fluorescence measurement system GSF3000 + MINIPAM

The system can measure the photosynthetic rate, transpiration rate and respiration rate of living plant leaves by gas exchange technology. Combined with the portable modulation chlorophyll fluorescence instrument MINI-PAM, it can achieve true measurement of gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorescence in real sense, which can be used in natural light conditions. Gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorescence were measured simultaneously.

  • Dew point water potential meter PSYPRO

Psypro dew point water potential measurement system consists of water potential measuring recorder and matched series of sensors (sample chamber), such as C-52 sample chamber, L-51 and L-51A sample chamber, PCT-55/PST-55 soil water potential probe The composition is used to quickly and conveniently determine the water potential of soil or leaves in the laboratory or in the field. The system automatically measures, records, and stores data. With digital display. Simultaneously connect up to 8 sample chambers and read directly in mPa.

  • Flux observation system

The system can be used for flux observation and is suitable for various underlying surface environments such as deep forest, grassland, farmland, desert and city. It can be applied to the study of regional carbon and water cycle processes as CO2 and H2O between ecosystem and atmosphere. And an effective means of energy mitigation information provides an important data base for the analysis of the geosphere-biosphere-atmosphere interactions and the role of terrestrial ecosystems in the carbon cycle.
