A complete system to perform solar cell characterisation

Solar cell I-V test system and solar simulator, available at a discounted price


The Ossila Solar Simulator and Solar Cell I-V Test System Bundle includes both a source measure unit and an LED-based solar simulator. It is an all-in-one solution for the rapid characterisation of solar cells fabricated with our popular fabrication platform. Using the included Solar Cell I-V measurement software, you can obtain device performance metrics in just a few clicks.

The bundle comes with either the manual I-V test system or automated I-V test system and is compatible with our 20 mm x 15 mm and 25 mm x 25 mm substrate designs.

The manual system comes with the solar simulator head, adjustable z-stage and optical breadboard, our dual-output source measure unit (Solar Cell I-V software included) and electrical test board, and all the required connection and power cables. This system offers maximum flexibility as it allows you to use the source measure unit and solar simulator independently as well as together.

The automated system consists of the solar simulator head mounted directly to our automated solar cell I-V test system. This system provides the quickest and easiest way to characterise your devices thanks to the software-controlled automatic switching of pixels under test in each device.

Why use an integrated I-V test system and solar simulator


Solar cell characterisation involves performing electrical measurements on an illuminated device. To make measurements comparable, the illumination should be standardised. This requires the use of a solar simulator. We have designed the I-V test system and solar simulator to work seamlessly together and tested their performance against other solutions. With our Solar Simulator and Solar Cell I-V Test System Bundle, you can be confident that reliable device metrics are only a few clicks away.

Key Features

Integrated system

Everything needed for photovoltaic characterisation in a complete package, designed to run together seamlessly. This simplifies set up and operation and reduces costs.

Complete Control

The fully programmable SMU (manual system only) and controllable power levels of the solar simulator make for unlimited experimental options. Use our easy-to-use software for rapid results or take control and design your own experiments.

Multiple Measurement Modes

Perform I-V sweeps to find key device performance metrics, run lifetime measurements for degradation studies or use as a soaking system to precondition cells. Our Solar Cell I-V software gives you the choice.

Compact

We have designed both our Solar Cell I-V Test System and Solar Simulator to be as compact as possible, making them suitable for use in the most space-constrained environments.

Unbeatable Value

The Ossila Solar Simulator and Solar Cell I-V Test System Bundle offers unbeatable value. Available for less than the two systems can be bought for separately, and less than many other comparable options on the market. Order yours today.
