JB Hyperspectral Devices is a start-up company founded in 2016 and based in Düsseldorf, Germany. The primary working focus is the design and production of an advanced and unique hyperspectral field instrument for the passive measure of Sun Induced chlorophyll Fluorescence (SIF) using atmospheric absorption lines. Accompanying this, JB Hyperspectral devices provides services for the adaptation of the hyperspectral non-imaging instruments for specific demands such as permanent installation in remote site or offers data processing service for various kinds of hyperspectral image or non-image data.

Das Leuchten der Pflanzen – An exhibition about chlorophyll fluorescence

While chlorophyll fluorescence is well known in research for tracking photosynthesis of plants, it is a totally new phenomenon for the public. With the emerging ESA-FLEX mission, the complex mechanisms of chlorophyll fluorescence and their impacts for research and the society are opened to a wider audience. The exhibition “Das...

The faint red glow of photosynthesis

200 years ago When Joseph von Fraunhofer in the year 1814 pointed one of the first ancient spectrometers towards the sun, he discovered spectral lines, later known as Fraunhofer lines. In these narrow lines, the atmosphere absorbs all light and they appear dark. Fraunhofer could not have known that 200...
