Point Source Integrating Cavity Absorption Meter

The Point Source Integrating Cavity Absorption Meter is a spectrophotometer dedicated to measure the absorption coefficient. Because of a high sensitivity and its independence of scattering effect, this instrument is particularly well adapted for coastal water.

PoLVSM

This new instrument, completely developed by our team, is dedicated to measure the Volume Scattering Function for all polarization states (nine elements of the Mueller matrix) and for a wide angular range.
