SUN
Earth
Temperature of the earth is set by
the difference between
absorbed and emitted energy
If no energy was emitted by the earth,
The earth’s temperature would
eventually rise to that of the sun

Power = Energy / Time [Joules / Second] = [Watts]
Power = DE / Time
Power = Photons / Time
Power = nhn /Time
Irradiance = Power / Area = (Photons / Time) / Area
Irradiance = [Watts / Square Meter]
Area = [ W/m2 ] = Irradiance
height = [ W/m2 nm ] = Spectral Irradiance
width = [ nm ] = Bandwidth

Based on ratios of reflected
Red and NIR intensity
Example Index:
Rred / Rnir
Spectral shift in illumination
prevents use of
simple irradiance sensing
Based on ratios of
Red and NIR Reflectance
Red Reflectance:
r = Rred / Ired
Example Index:
rred / rnir
Reflectance is primarily
a function of target

OSU Reflectance SensorResponsivity: rl [V/uW]
for a particular wavelength, output in volts, V is the product of
Responsivity times the Irradience I times sensor area.
[ W/m2 ] [V/uW] [m2]
For a wide band,
Irradiance may be computed from the
voltage reading for a narrow spectral band :
The average value of Responsivity,rl
for the detector must be used
Sensor reading, S, is normally an amplified and
digitized numeric value

Example:
Let I = 1 W/m2
