Newport Corp. has introduced its Oriel Sol3A line of large-area, constant-wave solar simulators. The Sol3A uses a xenon lamp and features a proprietary filter to meet all three Class A performance parameters (spectral match , non-uniformity of irradiance and temporal instability of irradiance) without compromising the one-sun output power.
Each version is certified to IEC 60904-9 2007, JIS C 8912 and ASTM E 927-05 standards. Newport says these solar simulators are available in sizes such as 2 in. x 2 in., 4 in. x 4 in., 6 in. x 6 in. and 8 in. x 8 in., making them suitable for the test and measurement of solar cells.
‘Our new line of Sol3A solar simulators is an excellent addition to the Oriel line of photovoltaic test and measurement solutions, which includes critical technologies that drive solar cell development such as IV testing (current-voltage measurement) and quantum efficiency measurement, and both external quantum efficiency and internal quantum efficiency,’ says Ed Manke, product manager for Newport's Oriel instruments.
