<p>Cool -- what kind of water quality are you looking at? Some kind of pollutant?</p>

<p>hi, no we try to extract water constituent concentrations from optical measurements. mainly chlorophyll-a, but also other stuff. we (the ocean color community) do this regularly with professional spectrometers and i wanted to see how well the desktop kit performs in comparison. i'll post my results and conclusions these days :-). but one thing is already obvious: sensitivity is an issue. but i have some ideas to tackle that. sooo, next station to be measured. greetings from estonia! cheers, philipp</p>

<p>very cool - i'm sure you know already but the best place to post is</p> <p>Hello to Estonia!</p> <p>Have you tried fluorescence? A green laser or strong UV light can amplify a signal a lot.</p> <p>Also, some people are modifying the spectrometers to use an SLR or a longer-exposure-capable camera. That will dramatically improve sensitivity. Some utilities can also be used to boost gain and exposure -- you can find them documented on the site. Good luck, thanks for the cool work!</p>
