Highly Collimated AM0 Solar Simulator

Highly Collimated Solar Simulator


Sciencetech’s Highly Collimated Solar Simulators were designed for photovoltaic cell testing applications where a very high degree of collimation of the incident radiation is required. CPV and solar thermal applications generally, both require light sources with angular divergences approaching that of the sun (0.5 degrees).

Sciencetech’s highly collimated solar simulators can provide ABA classification, large area continuous illumination (9” and 12” respectively) and high collimation (0.7 degrees half angle). These solar simulators include integrated power supplies and an advanced lamp alignment tool which makes them easy to use
