|摘要:||Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with various light wavelengths (red, yellow, green, blue and white) and various levels of light intensity (750, 1500 and 3000 mu mol m(-2) s(-1)) are applied to study the effects of light sources on chlorophyll a (Chl) and phycocyanin (Phy) production of Spirulina platensis. Logistic rate equations are used to depict the kinetic behavior of algal growth and pigments formation under various light sources and intensities. According to the regression results, a red LED is the best for algae growth. On the other hand, yellow light gives the best specific Chl production rate with a light intensity of 750 or 1500 mu mol m(-2) s(-1), and blue light yields the best specific pigments (for Chl and Phy) production rates at 3000 mu mol m(-2) s(-1). From the model fitting results, it is found that, at a higher light intensity, a higher specific Chl production rate accompanied by a higher S. platensis biomass is obtained. However, as for Phy production, a higher biomass results in a lower specific Phy production rate. The only exception is the use of blue light, which shows a positive effect on both Chl and Phy production rates under a higher light intensity. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
