New portable photometer

This instrument is designed for operation in photon-counting mode with use of a set of light filters in the visual spectral range under control of a portable PC, and is equiped with a sensitive photomultiplier as a detector of radiation. The system photometer + PC ensures recording of the light flux from objects under study with a high time resolution down to 1 ms.
