Newport Introduces State-of-the-Art Oriel® Sol3A(TM) Class AAA Solar Simulators

(PresseBox) ( Stratford, Connecticut, )
Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in photonic solutions, announces the innovative, Oriel Sol3A(TM) solar simulators, the latest addition to their family of photovoltaic test and measurement solutions. These large area, constant wave (CW) sources use a xenon lamp and feature a proven, proprietary filter to meet all three Class A performance parameters (spectral match , non-uniformity of irradiance, and temporal instability of irradiance) without compromising the 1 sun output power. Each version is certified to the IEC 60904-9 2007 edition, JIS C 8912, and ASTM E 927-05 standards. Newport's new solar simulators are available in sizes from 2 x 2, 4 x 4, 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 inches, making them ideal for the test and measurement of solar cells.

According to Ed Manke, product manager for Newport's Oriel instruments, "We are very excited to introduce our next-generation technology in the new Oriel Sol3A solar simulators to the rapidly growing photovoltaic test and measurement markets. We have supported this market for more than 30 years by delivering proven performance and rugged durability with our test and measurement products. Our new line of Sol3A solar simulators is an excellent addition to the Oriel line of photovoltaic test and measurement solutions, which includes the critical technologies that drive solar cell development such as IV testing (current-voltage measurement) and quantum efficiency (QE) measurement, both external quantum efficiency (EQE) and internal quantum efficiency (IQE). The result is a cost-effective system rugged design- all backed by our global service and support network."
