UV-VIS-IR Spectral Responsivity Measurement System for Solar Cells

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

NREL's PV Cell and Module Performance Characterization group has built a new spectral responsivity measurement systems for solar cells. It uses a xenon arc lamp soursce, a single, grating monochrometer, and a fiber-optic bundle to couple the monochromatic light to the test device. The system has a spectral bandwidth of 2 nm, minimum spot diameter of 1.6 mm, a spectral range of 280-1330 nm, anduncertainty better than +/- 3% over most of this range. It is capable of incorporating light bias with intensities exceeding one sun. This report discusses the system's features, capabilities, calibration, and measurement uncertainties.
