How to measure a low power broadband light source?

Photodiodes are usually used to measure the power and energy of low power laser beams. Can photodiodes be used to measure low power broadband light sources? Laser measurement of high-power broadband light sources can easily be measured using standard thermal or pyroelectric sensors. Pyroelectric and thermal sensors generate an electrical current proportional to absorbed heat…

Worms and Lasers: A Fascinating Story

In order to better understand the neuronal origins of human behavior, scientists from Harvard University studied the response of Celegans (transparent nematodes – worms) to the application of strategically applied laser beams. These Celegans have a well mapped, but simple nervous system which can serve as an adequate model for researching the human nervous system.…
