An Innovative Small Area AAA LED Solar Simulator

Harness High-Precision Engineered Sunlight For Any Application

Your application requires reliability, consistency, and precision from your solar simulator. While your applications change over time to push the bounds of science your requirements stay the same. Isn’t it time your instrumentation kept pace with your present and future needs?

Our products have been created to surpass the competition and exceed your expectations with what you require, engineered sunlight in a lab. No longer will you need to worry about random spikes or dips in the spectra, dimming bulbs, and cluttered shelves of expensive filters due to conventional bulb-based solar simulators. Even better, your conclusions will have higher consistency and repeatability, instilling that extra confidence in your results.

It’s about time you joined the scientific community experiencing Class A Spectral Matching, Class A Spatial Uniformity, and Class A Temporal Stability while having complete control over a tunable spectrum with a click of a button.

You’re one step away from making your ideas a reality.

Pico Upgrades

Harness The Power of the Only Upgradable LED AAA Solar Simulator

Your research is taking you on another scientific adventure. Your solar simulator should be able to make the journey.

Variable Spectra Module icon
Variable Spectra Module

The Variable Spectra module unlocks full spectral control with software-controlled intensity manipulation. This upgrade enables control of up to 32 tunable channels depending on your model to replicate virtually any solar condition.

The module’s software-controlled, user-programmable spectrum enables users to simulate and conduct spectrum-specific research.

Includes spectral presets for AM1.5G and AM0 to AM40, for intensities from 0 to 1.1 suns.

One Click Sun (beta) Software Module

Test your applications as if they were anywhere in the world, during any season, and at any time of the day with the power of One Click Sun.

Need to have it cycle through the days faster? It does this as well.

Our software is crafted to be simple, accurate and easily configurable. Test with added confidence without needing to fly around the world.

IV Hardware Module icon
IV Hardware Module

Integrated data collection hardware and software for PV Power Conversion Efficiency (PCE) measurements.

The IV module will measure the performance of a solar cell and generate a characterization report with all electrical characteristics – following the ASTM E1021 standard test method.

Obtain fast and accurate measurements for your research cells with Current-Voltage (IV) testing, and enjoy the ease of a system that integrates all the necessary analysis and equipment.

EQE icon
Low-Resolution EQE Hardware Module

Integrated data collection hardware and software for low-resolution EQE measurement

The Low-Resolution EQE module provides wavelength-resolved measurements of your photovoltaic device’s external quantum efficiency (EQE) under operational conditions without needing finicky set-ups requiring monochromators or external bias lighting, saving you time when you only need a quick check instead of high-resolution data.

Following a test method analogous to the ASTM E1021 standard test method, the EQE module allows you to gain insight into the factors limiting solar cell performance.
