LANL - How Water Moves in Trees

Water in trees LANL

At Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Ultra Low Field-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and neutron imaging experiment is conducted under a special growth lamp to induce stomatal openings. An LED lamp (no magnetic noise and heat produced) provides a high density of photosynthetically active radiation. To human eyes it looks pinkish because the wavelength band starts at 400nm and it cuts out some of the blues.
