Chlorophyll fluorescence: a technological beacon for collaboration


BobinPhenomicsLight, for photosynthesis researchers, is not just an object of study, but also a tool for research. Before the Year of Light comes to an end, we would like to focus our attention on one of the ways in which light has been used to study how plants photosynthesise: chlorophyll fluorescence.

Find out more about this technology and how the Centre is using in its quest to improve photosynthesis
