We started to read up about the work, found it absolutely fascinating, and thought you’d like to get in on it too….Let’s say you’re a biologist, and you want to measure how much photosynthesis is going on. One way to do this would be to look for greenness, but it turns out an even better method is to look for infrared and not blue – this is what the filter lets us do…
