The CALMIT "SpecLab" provides a facility for collecting spectral data under controlled, experimental conditions. SpecLab provides a dark room and various calibration instruments to characterize and calibrate optical sensors for scientific applications and collect precise spectral data in a controlled environment. A variety of laboratory equipment is available to researchers and students including integrating spheres, calibration light sources, a Shimadzu UV-2501PC (UV-VIS) recording spectrophotometer and a LI-COR 3100 area meter.  The  SpecLab also contains facilities and equipment for analyzing water samples as well as large ovens for drying vegetation samples.
