G2V Optics has crafted the pico LED small area solar simulator to provide truly controllable illumination, complete with software-controlled spectra, traceable calibration, all with no bulbs, filters, or moving parts. The pico can replicate any terrestrial or extraterrestrial solar spectra including AM1.5G, AM0 – AM10, and geography-, season-, or time-specific spectra with the click of a button.
The pico LED solar simulator starts off with the standard ASTM AM1.5G spectrum of 400 nm – 1100 nm. Other factory custom-built options are available when ordering your pico, and various modules can also be added as an upgrade to your pico after the initial purchase.

The pico is a research-grade instrument for solar cell testing, photochemistry, and environmental testing. You choose a spectral range and upgrade to completely control spectrum & intensity, to measure photovoltaic IV characteristics, and to obtain low-resolution EQE measurements.
The Variable Spectra module unlocks full spectral control with software-controlled intensity manipulation. This upgrade enables control of up to 28 tunable channels to replicate virtually any solar condition.
The module’s software-controlled, user-programmable spectrum enables users to simulate and conduct spectrum-specific research. Includes preset AM1.5G and AM0 to AM40 spectra for intensities from 0 to 1.1 suns.
One-Click Sun™ Software enables users to replicate irradiance and spectrum based on geography, season, and time of day. Our software was crafted to be simple, accurate and easily configurable.
The IV module will measure the performance of a solar cell and generate a characterization report with all electrical characteristics – following the ASTM E1021 test method standard.
Obtain fast and accurate measurements for your research cells with Current-Voltage testing, and enjoy the ease of a system that integrates all the necessary analysis and equipment.
The Low-Resolution EQE module provides wavelength resolved measurements of your device’s performance under active conditions. Following a test method analogous to the ASTM E1021 standard method, the External Quantum Efficiency module allows you to gain insight into the factors limiting performance in your devices.
