SpectroLab XT30 Solar Simulator

The Spectrolab XT30 is one of the most powerful solar simulators available. It uses the same 3kW Xenon Arc bulb as a military helicopter searchlight. It is so powerful that, if samples are not properly water cooled, the beam can cause semiconductors to catch fire. Some of its useful features include:

  • Continuous wave 3kW Xenon arc source with a variety of spectrum filters
  • Stand with control and positioning, thermal mounts, and irradiance mapping and calibration
  • IV measurement equipment
  • 1200x Suns at 1/2 x 1/2 cm^2 area
  • 500x Suns at 1 x 1 cm^2 area
  • 100x Suns at 6 x 6 cm^2 area
