Especially under water or when working with suspensions, the amount of scattered light is very high, so that a spherical sensor should be used. The US-SQS sensor uses a plastic diffuser to obtain an angular response error of less than ± 5% from -100° to 100° angle.

For photosynthesis research, sensors with spectral and directional sensitivity relevant for plants are required.

Spectral Response:
US-SQS sensor uses a plastic diffuser to obtain an angular response error of less than ± 5% (-100…100° angle). Fig. 3 shows a typical angular response curve.

The solid line shows the ideal response of a photon fluence sensor for photosynthetically active radiation (PAR, defined for the 400 – 700 nm wavelength range. For comparison Fig. 2, shows the response to energy fluence rate from 350 – 750 nm.
