Fully Reflective Solar Simulator

The Fully Reflective Class ABA Solar Simulator


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.

About Our Fully Reflective Class ABA Solar Simulators


Sciencetech manufactures four high power versions of Class ABA Fully Reflective Solar Simulators. Schiencetech's properietary fully reflective design uses metal coated mirrors and passes the whole spectrum, no compromise. This is a distinct advantage over refractive based systems that are limited by the properties of the transparent material used.

The fully reflective design utilizes a series of mirrors, including a special folding mirror that bends the light source without the drawbacks of refractive optics. This allows the simulator to direct the light beam from the arc lamp source to the target plane, producing a higher intensity, uniform illumination at the target plane than a competitor’s simulators.

In Sciencetech’s line of fully reflective solar simulators the power output will typically be 1.3 times more powerful when compared to simulators that use the same wattage of arc lamp with diffusers to make the light field uniform at the target.

The high pressure xenon lamp used in each simulator projects an excellent basic match for solar simulation. The solar spectral distribution at different Earth conditions can be simulated through use of Air Mass filters AM0 for Solar Simulator.

For more variation of where your test surface is located, several simulators can be mounted on a vertical stand, and if coupled with a beam turning accessory, enable the simulator’s ability to project towards a floor, wall, or ceiling, depending on your research requirements.

The air mass filters used with each simulator are 3" x 3" in size and can be easily switched in each model via a built-in access panel. There are two AM filter slots in each simulator; additional slots can be added upon consultation.

Every time the illumination target size of a Fully Reflective Solar Simulator changes, the reflective mirrors inside the solar simulator that direct the light from the source to the target need to be refocused. Although this can be performed manually, the procedure is a hassle should the user need to change the target spot size frequently. The solar simulator would need to be shut down and have each internal mirror re-adjusted to support a different focal spot size. With this variable focus option re-adjusting the internal mirrors of the solar simulator is performed through a single knob without having to shutdown the solar simulator. This feature can also be used to vary illumination intensity by spreading the light over a larger area or concentrating the light into a smaller area.

This stand enables 2.5k fully reflective solar simulators to project their output beam downwards onto a horizontal illumination table which makes it ideal for solar cell testing. The beam is projected down onto a built-in sample platform (not shown) where the sample such as a solar cell is placed. The stand assures the distance between the output port of the solar simulator to the sample platform produces exactly 1 SUN intensity (100mW/cm2 using an AM1.5G filter).

Without the Downward Facing Vertical Stand, a Solar Simulator projects the beam parallel to the floor at cells mounted vertically.
