Solar Simulator

Solar simulators provide a broadband spectrum close to that of the sun from the UV to the IR. The main part of the solar simulator is a xenon arc lamp that reaches a color temperature of almost 6000K which is very close to sun light. We provide solar simulators with a wide range of luminous fields for different sample sizes and budgets, varying in size from 25 mm to 260 mm x 260 mm in diameter. The irradiance (W/m?) depends on the size of the desired output beam, the lamp?s power input and the layout of the simulator?s optic. The spectral characteristics are always the same.
