Solar Simulator Measurement
Nov 2011Ocean Optics Inc.Request Info
Ocean Optics’ RaySphere measures absolute irradiance over spectral ranges from the UV to the NIR (380 to 1700 nm), including solar simulators and other radiant sources. The portable system is used by solar simulator manufacturers and research and development labs to validate the output of installed solar flashlamps. The flash of a solar simulator is used within the photovoltaic manufacturing process for the binning of cells according to spectral response and for final photovoltaic module efficiency measurements. The system provides the necessary accuracy and resolution to measure and analyze the performance and stability of the flasher, with ultralow-jitter triggering electronics for timing the measurement to the flashes.
