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.

The XE-LUM can achieve better uniformity when paired with multiple units in an array to flood the illumination plane.

The stand is an accessory that is sold separately. The XE-LUM can be arranged for vertical or horizontal illumination. In either configuration, the Luminaire can be rotated through 360 degrees in both sagittal and tangential planes.

The Luminaire has a single phase power supply and requires 200 to 240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A. The required plug type needs to be defined based on the equipment's intended location.

Please speak with your authorized Sciencetech technical sales staff member for larger illumination areas, different spectral matches, or to have other customized options for this system.

A single Large Area Solar Illuminator (LASI) unit.
Each LASI unit illuminates up to 0.5x0.5m with a filtered Xenon Arc lamp producing 6,000K illumination.
In certain applications a single LASI may be used on its own. However LASIs are best used in arrays of multiple units, as the optical performance improves when the light from multiple units overlaps.
A single LASI unit produces Class C Spectral match, Class A temporal instability. See the brochure for details about the system non-uniformity classification. Better optical performance is possible: please discuss your particular needs with your authorized Sciencetech technical support staff member.
Each unit has a single-phase power supply with a touch screen interface. Systems can be operated remotely through software.
Base system does not include a mount, see brochure for product information.
Power requirements: 200-240 VAC, 12.1 to 9.0 A.

Sciencetech’s fully reflective solar simulators can be used for UV applications by replacing the solar filters with UV filters. Sciencetech's proprietary Fully Reflective design allows the system to get far more UV power on target than our competitor's systems of equal size.

Please note that the wavelength definition of UVA and UVB in the COLIPA sun screen testing community is slightly different from the general scientific community.
This solar simulator includes testing and filters to verify the system meets COLIPA and USFDA spectral requirements.
Please discuss your specific spectral needs with your authorized Sciencetech technical sales staff.

Main Features:
Class AAA Solar Simulator
Fully reflective design instead of diffusing lens to create uniformity on target spot
No Chromatic Aberration
150W ozone free xenon arc lamp
Air cooled lamp housing
Adjustable power supply with LED display, includes igniter
Standard horizontal operation, vertical option
Optional folding mirror to redirect output beam
