NIGHTSEA is the leader in making practical tools to discover and photograph fluorescence in the marine environment. We discovered the power of blue light to produce the most effective fluorescence, paving the way for sport divers to experience the underwater world in a whole new light and providing marine scientists with powerful tools for research.
Trade-offs between the longpass and bandpass (green-only) filters for use with the Royal Blue excitation.
There are two types of approaches to answering the question of whether something fluoresces – empirical (try it and see) vs scientific (make careful measurements). Read to learn the difference.
Fluorescence microscopy imaging trials with the NIGHTSEA Model SFA and Unitron and Zeiss microscopes with digital cameras.
With fluorescence, what you see depends on how you excite and view the subject – the interaction of the excitation wavelength, the fluorescing substance, and the barrier filter.
