Konica Minolta Sensing Americas Inc. (KMSA) has launched its AK-120/130/140 PV reference cells, which the company says are the world's first triple-junction solar reference cells.
The AK-120/130/140 is the latest addition to the AK Series of reference cells. KMSA first introduced its AK Series in 2010. Reference cells are used as a standard point of calibration to ensure consistent measurements of newly developed photovoltaic cells, the company explains.
The AK-120/130/140 reference cell has been designed using an optical filter mounted on a stable crystalline silicon solar cell.
