Spectroscopy is an essential tool for monitoring the growth and production in your bioreactor. We will make our own light source and detector setup. The class is about other analytical techniques too.
This week we will build a spectrometer. We have created 2 spectrometer designs, you may choose which design to build.
Photodiode array-based photospectrometer
Webcam-based spectrometer design
