G2V Optics has crafted the pico 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 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 research-grade instrument for solar cell testing, photochemistry, and environmental testing. You choose a spectral range and upgrade to complete spectra & intensity control, photovoltaic IV measurement, and EQE characterization.
The Variable Spectra module unlocks full spectral control with software-controlled intensity manipulation. This upgrade enables control of 28 wavelengths to replicate virtually any solar condition.
Software-controlled, user-programmable solar spectra enables users to simulate and conduct spectra-specific research. Includes preset AM1.5G and AM0 to AM10 spectra for 0 to 1.1 suns intensity.
One-Click Sun™ Software enables users to replicate irradiance and spectrum based on geography, season, and time of day. Our software was crafted to ensure simple, configurable and accurate use of our products.
The IV module will measure the performance of solar cells and generate a characterization report showing all electrical characteristics with curve fitting for error analysis – following the standard test method defined by ASTM E1021. Obtain rapid, accurate and efficient measurements for your research devices with Current-Voltage testing.
The EQE module provides wavelength resolved measurements of your device’s performance under active conditions. Following the standard test method defined by ASTM E1021, the External Quantum Efficiency module allows you to gain insight into the factors limiting performance in your devices.
