Low Concentration Photo-Voltaic (LCPV) & High Concentration Photo-Voltaic (HCPV) Cell Testing

 

Table below shows our standard systems modified to concentrate the light to smaller area to meet the LCPV and HCPV Cell testing needs or any other application that requires high flux Solar Simulators.

LCPV / HCPV APPLICATIONS

  • Concentrated PV Cell testing
  • Photo-biological studies of plants, animals, and cell cultures
  • Semiconductor testing
  • Photo-toxicity research
  • Material degradation research
  • Accelerated UV and solar exposure testing of color fastness and material stability for paints, textiles and plastics
  • Atmospheric photochemical pollution research
