Pico - Small Area LED Solar Simulator

Precisely Replicate Terrestrial or Extraterrestrial Solar Spectra with the Click of a Button.

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. Replicate AM1.5G, AM0 – AM40, and geography-, season-, or time-specific spectra with the click of a button.

It’s your research made more accurate.

Pico is exceeding Class A in solar spectral match, it offers a high-consistency, high-precision spectral mismatch of less than 5% to exceed Class A requirements by a factor of 5 – as defined by ASTM E927, IEC 60904-9, and JIS C8912 Standards.

The Pico is designed to grow with your research needs. Because Your Research Matters. Your research is changing the world. You can’t afford imprecise light that gives inaccurate results.

The Pico is a research-grade instrument suitable for testing any photosensitive (light-sensitive) materials or processes, including solar cells, sunscreen, plastics, photochromic devices, photochemical processes, environmental degradation, aerospace materials, and more.

You choose a spectral range and upgrade to completely control spectrum & intensity, to measure photovoltaic IV characteristics, and to obtain low-resolution EQE measurements.

For the latest information on the Pico small area solar simulator, please download our LED Solar Simulator Brochure. It includes everything you need to know about the Pico, as well as a complete specification sheet. If you would like to know more, please get in touch.
