Solar Simulator

EKO advanced AAA solar simulators are based on a high power xenon lamp combined with precision optics and optical filters to match the AM1.5 Solar Spectrum. The Irradiance output can be control through an integrated control unit and measurement processing unit.  Light intensity can be maintained very stable using closed loop intensity control which continuously monitors the light variance of lamp. This solar simulator is typically used for reserach & development applications to characterize and optimize solar cells.
