Solar simulator

/ Light sources

These solar simulator models provide the closest broadband spectrum to that of the sun from the UV to the IR.

All solar simulators (Sirius-SS systems) contain a xenon arc lamp that reaches a color temperature of 6000 K, a temperature very close to sun light.

Beam collimation, spot uniformity, spectral matching are key important requirements. Our solar simulators are suitable for all types of solar cells and perfectly match their optical requirements.

The main application of our solar simulators is the evaluation of power parameter of solar cells. For this type of measurements, the solar simulator is integrated into an IV measuring station. For setting the correct irradiance value we offer calibrated reference cells. Further applications are the determination of plant growth, characterization of transparent components (sun protection glasses, skin care products development) …
