  author={Alexander M Chekalyuk and Mark Hafez},
  journal={Optics express},
  volume={21 12},
The new optical design allows single- or multi-wavelength excitation of laser-stimulated emission (LSE), provides optimized LSE optical collection for spectral and temporal analyses, and incorporates swappable modules for flow-through and small-volume sample measurements. The basic instrument configuration uses 510 nm laser excitation for assessments of chlorophyll-a, phycobiliprotein pigments, variable fluorescence (F(v)/F(m)) and chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in CDOM-rich… CONTINUE READING
