Important advances in solar and atmospheric research are often limited by the availability of advanced instrumentation. In particular, solar spectral sensors and sun photometers often cost upwards of $50k — unaffordable for many researchers. With the development of the SolarSIM technology, Spectrafy has gone a long way to lowering that barrier, but we wanted to do more.
Spectrafy is pleased to make a number of our ground-breaking SolarSIM-D2 and SolarSIM-G sensors available to select research institutions. Our goal is to accelerate new and innovative research within the solar and meteorological communities.
- Applicants must operate at a publicly-funded research institution.
- Research should be in the fields of solar energy, atmospheric research or agriculture.
- Research must be completed within thirteen months of receiving sensor.
- Research results must be disseminated publicly.
