Concentrator Flash Solar Simulators

Sciencetech’s FSSC flash solar simulator concentrator is designed to illuminate small photovoltaic devices up to 5cm×5cm in size with up to 4000 suns peak intensity. The default spectral match is to ASTM AM1.5G, using a heavy-duty xenon flash lamp and spectral filtering.

The flash is 500µs at 90% of peak intensity, and 2.5ms at 50% of peak intensity, but pulse stretching options are available for longer, flatter pulses (purchased separately). The uniformity of the system is better than 2% at the target plane.

This product includes a flash system, power supply, and lamp. Air mass filters are sold separately (AM1.5G). Other filters are available at additional cost. Available accessories include IV measurement systems, pre-configured host computers, and sample holding and cooling options.
