Method PPFD (photosynthetic photon flux density) on the adaxial leaf surface at natural leaf orientation was measured with small G1118 GaAsP (gallium arsenide phosphide) photodiodes (Hamamatsu Corp., Bridgewater, NJ, USA), which operate in a broad range of temperatures with minimum drift
Comments In the range 400-700nm on a horizontal plane. Please see Körner C (2013) Plant-environment interactions. Chapter 12, pp.1065-1166 in: Bresinsky et al. (eds) Strasburger's plant sciences. Springer Berlin Heidelberg p.1069 left column top paragraph for a derived photon flux density of 1,500-2,500µmol/m^2/sec
