Proper light composition may have significant impact on plant properties, important from the consumer's point of view. Based on experimental cultivation of thyme, examination of thyme leaves grown under different spectra was performed. Transmissive spectra, colorimetric properties, dry mass yield as well as biometrical properties (shape of leaves) were determined. Attention to the issues of energy efficacy of light sources was also paid. <br /><br />Full Text: <a href="" target="_parent">PDF</a> <br /><br /><strong>References</strong></p> <ol> <li>D.L.

The sensor was developed in the Department of Optoelectronics. The sensor was tested in the temperature range from 23 °C – 80 °C. For each of the temperatures, the sensitivity was determined on the basis of a sinusoidal waveform. Thus, the linearity of the transfer characteristics was checked. The main purpose of the experiment was to check the limits of sensitivity changes in changing thermal conditions and whether the sensor meets the standards used in the power industry. <br /><br />Full Text: <a href="" target="_parent">PDF</a> <br /><br /><strong>References</strong></p> <ol> <li>M.J.
