Harsh Environment

Designed for the illumination head to be immersed in solutions for electrochemical experiments like photocatalysis and water-splitting. The aluminum housing is replaced with a Teflon housing, providing chemical resistance to acidic or basic solutions. 

ADD $ 3,000

Normal Atmosphere

The standard pico illumination head had an aluminum housing suitable for use in a normal atmosphere. 

Module Upgrades

IV Module

Integrated data collection hardware and software for PV PCE measurement (no external source meter needed).

Following the standard test method defined by ASTM E1021, the current-voltage electronic testing module performance of solar cells and generates a characterization report showing all electrical characteristics with curve fitting for error analysis.

Stands

Fixed

A fixed stand is available with both the pico Fixed and Variable. The fixed stand is a static fixture for the pico, with the ability to detach and re-attach the illumination head for a variety of experiments. 

$ 2,700

Vertical Translation

The linear positioning stand is available for both the pico Fixed and Variable. The stand allows you to adjust the linear translation of the pico as you perform tests.
