OSCILLATOR: A system for analysis of diurnal leaf growth using infrared photography combined with wavelet transformationRalph Bours, Manickam Muthuraman, Harro Bouwmeester, Alexander van der KrolPlant Methods, 2012 View paper
OSCILLATOR is an affordable system for the analysis of rhythmic leaf growth movement in mature plants. The system contains three modules: (1) Infrared time-lapse imaging of growing mature plants (2) measurement of projected distances between leaf tip and plant apex (leaf tip tracking growth-curves) and (3) extraction of phase, period and amplitude of leaf growth oscillations using wavelet analysis.
