Newport Corporation has launched the Oriel Sol3A solar simulators, the latest addition to its family of photovoltaic test and measurement solutions.
These large area, constant wave (CW) sources use a xenon lamp and feature a filter to meet all three Class A performance parameters (spectral match, non-uniformity of irradiance, and temporal instability of irradiance) without compromising the 1 sun output power.
Each version is certified to the IEC 60904-9 2007 edition, JIS C 8912, and
ASTM E 927-05 standards. Newport's new solar simulators are available in sizes from 2 x 2, 4 x 4, 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 inches, making them ideal for the test and measurement of solar cells.
