SOLTUNE is a subsidiary of In-situ Marine Optics, which specialises in the development of optics based instruments for marine research. We have recently expanded into spectrally tunable light systems and provide solar simulation units for coral replication experiments and the built environment. Our team includes optical physicists, software and electronic engineers, and biologists. Our mission is to make research grade equipment more accessible to the global community by using the latest technology available.
