Solar simulator (artificial sun)
This is a device that provides lighting close to natural sunlight. The purpose of the solar power simulator is to provide a controlled internal test setup in a laboratory environment. It can be used to test any photosensitive process or material, including solar cells, sunscreen, cosmetics, plastics, aerospace materials, skin cancer, bioluminescence, etc. Photosynthesis, water purification, crude oil degradation, and free radical generation. Solar simulators are used in many areas of research such as photobiology, photooxidation, photodegradation, photovoltaics, and photocatalysis.
Solar simulators are used to recreate "natural" solar radiation in the laboratory to test the photovoltaic properties of devices and their quality.
Beam collimation and light uniformity, along with spectral matching, are the main characteristics of a radiation source. The SS1000 instruments are suitable for all types of solar cells and meet all their optical requirements, and are also suitable for large area samples.
