What is the broad spectrum?
What is the broad spectrum? What is the optimum spectrum?
This two questions question which we often hear from our customers.
Today lets try to understand what is broad spectrum and where is should be used.
This is important because as we do more research, we are discovering that wavelengths such as green, yellow-green, which were previously thought of as not very useful, are proving to be important in photosynthesis and certain morphological responses.
Additionally, Nexsel broad-spectrum luminaires emit energy in the far-red region, which can help promote stem extension and leaf expansion.
Also, broad-spectrum lights play important role in such a growing environment where people has to identify issues such as nutritional deficiency, pets, leaf texture, diseases, leaf coloration, etc due to higher CRI. So broad spectrum light is pleasing to the eye & makes it easier to work.
Broad spectrum LEDs have lower efficacy than red/blue LEDs due to conversion, energy, and optical losses within the phosphor conversion process.
Yes, there is always the possibility to give better broad spectrum by doing a better mixture of different wavelengths. In our research facility, using our specialized light we are always improving on it.
In Next article, will explain about what is an optimum spectrum is and where it is used.
