High Intensity, Uniform Illumination of artificial solar irradiation


Typically, high power solar simulators use an ellipsoidal reflector to capture light from an arc lamp source inside the reflector, an arrangement that results in a light pattern with a bright outer region and a dark center. This non-uniformity is unacceptable in many solar simulator applications and as a result, forces many of our solar simulator competitors to use designs involving diffusers to reduce the non-uniformity. This results in a reduction of intensity and a distortion of the spectrum on the target area.


Sciencetech’s solution to these problems is to use a unique system of mirrors that ‘fold’ the light onto the target plane, effectively reducing the light that is lost with little to no spectral distortion and also ensures no chromatic aberration in the output beam.


In addition, each of Sciencetech’s solar simulators are customizable to best suit your requirements. The design of the fully reflective solar simulator permits a trade-off between power and uniformity. Higher uniformity can be achieved with lower power; or power can be increased and uniformity reduced.

The Solar Constant and Solar Simulation


The radiation from the Sun is measured in two ways for a variety of fields of research. The solar constant is the irradiance or intensity of light incident at the surface of the Earth’s atmosphere on a plane normal to the angle of incidence.


This value has been defined by the World Meteorological Organization to be 1366.7W/m2 outside the atmosphere. The irradiance of the Sun at the Earth’s surface varies under different conditions due to absorption and scattering effects in the atmosphere, and so a number of other constants are important in regards to the irradiance of a solar simulator.



Below the atmosphere the radiation emitted from the Sun can be divided into two components: direct radiation that comes from the Sun itself, and scattered radiation coming from the rest of the sky, including a portion reflected back from the ground. Solar simulators are adjusted to imitate the spectral distribution of sunlight for a variety of environments; to do this the spectral distribution from the xenon arc lamp source is altered and refined using Air Mass (AM) filters.


When discussing filters, the direct radiation spectrum is imitated using a direct (D) filter, and the total including scattered sky and ground radiation is matched by using a global (G) filter that imitates both components together.

Sciencetech AM Filters


Sciencetech’s AM filters are designed to be used individually for standard conditions, although they can also be arranged in series to produce other spectral distributions. Many solar simulator systems used by our competition require filters to be used in series to achieve the same performance as Sciencetech’s filters, for example using AM0 and AM1.0 filters in series to achieve a AM1.0 spectral distribution, whereas Sciencetech’s AM1.0 filter can be used alone to achieve the same result, reducing power loss and the cost of additional filters.

Sciencetech AM Filters
Sciencetech Xenon Arc Lamp Light Source

Most Sciencetech solar simulators use xenon arc lamps, which enables the system to produce an intense, collimated beam of light, similar to that of a 5,800oK blackbody. The biggest difference between the two is the xenon lines are present in the arc spectrum, and atmospheric absorptions in solar spectra, which is especially highlighted in the 800-1100nm range because of the intense line output of the lamp. An AM0 filter can reduce this effect so that the average level in specified bands matches solar levels above the atmosphere to better than ±25%, although complete elimination of the xenon lines while preserving the rest of the spectrum is impossible with a practical filter. AM1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 filters further modify the visible and UV portions of the spectrum for different sea-level conditions, and coupled with the use of high pressure Xenon arc lamps Sciencetech is capable of producing Class A standards for our solar simulators.

The graphs on the right show the typical output spectra of Sciencetech’s fully reflective solar simulators. These spectral irradiance curves combine the spectral curves of the xenon arc lamp source, air mass filter, and mirrors used inside the solar simulator beam homogenizer. Actual output spectra may vary due to the condition of the lamp and manufacturing tolerances of the air mass filters. In order to simplify visual comparison of the spectral curves of our solar simulators with ASTM E927-10 standard curves, the simulator outputs are normalized to the corresponding standard spectrum.

This solar simulator has one filter holder mounting one 76x76mm (3"x3") filter. Available Air Mass filters include AM0, AM1.0, AM1.5 direct and global, and AM2.0. Other filters such as dichroic filters and bandpass filters are available for further modification of the spectrum. Filters are sold separately; please specify which filters should be sent with the solar simulator when ordering.

This instrument features standard horizontal operation, but vertical operation is optional. A folding mirror to change output beam direction is optional.

Please speak with your authorized Sciencetech Technical Sales Staff for further details and a full range of options.

Sciencetech’s PSS1 flash solar simulator is designed to illuminate large photovoltaic devices up to 1m × 1m in size with 1 Sun intensity, using a built-in beam-conditioning reflector to maximize the uniform light distribution. The default spectral match is to ASTM AM1.5G, using a heavy-duty xenon flash lamp and spectral filtering. The flash is 500µs at 90% of peak intensity, and 2.5ms at 50% of peak intensity, but pulse stretching options are available for longer, flatter pulses (purchased separately).

This product includes a flash system, power supply, lamp, and an air mass filter (AM1.5G). Other filters are available at additional cost. Available accessories include IV measurement systems, pre-configured host computers, and sample holding and cooling options. Please inquire with Sciencetech technical support staff about our automation and assembly line manufacturing partners.

Spectral Match: Class A
Spatial Non-Uniformity: Class A
Temporal Instability: Class A
Target Size: 1m × 1m (1 Sun)
Working Distance: 25-50mm
Pulse Length: 500µs at 90% of peak intensity, 2.5ms at 50% of peak intensity
Collimation: Non-collimated
Spectral range: 400 nm -1100 nm

This solar simulator is based on a Fresnel lens to collimate the light beam from the 1.6kW Xe ozone-free arc lamp source, resulting in highly collimated illumination of the target spot. The spectral distribution of the xenon light source, along with the use of specially calibrated air mass filters, closely simulates the sun’s true spectral distribution in various conditions on Earth.

Works best with 1 Sun AM1.5D filters (not included). Other AM filters are available but they may change the target size achievable. Contact a Sciencetech technical sales representative for details.

Target: up to 20 cm (8") diameter (depends on required irradiance level)
Collimation: 0.7° half angle (70% of irradiance is within)
Non-uniformity: Class B
Lamp: 1.6kW ozone-free Xe short arc
Lamp Housing: air cooled
Illumination Direction: horizontal
Power Supply: 611-1.6k adjustable touchscreen supply
Filter Mounting: for one 7.6 × 7.6 cm (3" × 3") filter (not included)

Includes: 20 cm (8") diameter UV transmitting Fresnel lens, intensity mask to produce class B (<5%) non-uniformity up to 8" diameter, igniter.

Optional accessories: vertical beam turning unit, light intensity stabilizer, integrated motorized shutter
