This solar simulator is based on a Fresnel lens to collimate the light beam from the 3.0kW 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.
