SS-ZXR AM0 Standard Spectrum Solar Simulator

With the development of space science and technology, the simulation of outer space sunlight has become a crucial part for the development of space science and technology. The AM0 standard spectrum is defined according to the ASTM regulation, and the light simulator for space application needs to meet the following requirements:

(1) ASTM AM0 Standard Spectrum (ASTM E927-10)
(2) Illuminance Intensity 1366 W/m2
(3) Spatial Non-uniformity < 2%

AM0 Solar Simulator Sun Simulator

  Enlitech uses a xenon short arc lamp as a broadband light source. The color temperature of xenon lamps is 6000K, which is the closest to natural sunlight (5500K). The SS-ZXR solar simulator not only uses the optical analog software to analogize the optomechanical system design, but also uses Fourier optics technology to generate spatially uniform irradiance.

  The AM0 filter used in the SS-ZXR solar simulator is made of advanced plasma deposition technology, with high spectral accuracy and long working life. Better spectral ratings make SS-ZXR more suitable than any other simulator for characterizing solar cells for space.
