Class AAA Solar Simulator for Small-Area Solar Cells

Reliable LED light source for fast and consistent solar cell testing


Overview | Specifications | Features | Gallery | Software | In the Box | Accessories | Resources and Support


Compact and low price, the Ossila Solar Simulator is ideal for characterizing small-area solar cells. An array of powerful LEDs accurately simulate the AM1.5G spectrum over a wavelength of 350 – 1050 nm. The system has excellent AAA spectral distribution over a 15 mm diameter area and ABA classification over a 25 mm diameter area (according to IEC 60904-9:2020 international standard).

The stable and reliable output easily achieve Class A temporal stability. Plus, with zero maintenance and minimal warm-up time, you can streamline your research processes. Just plug it in, turn it on, and start measuring.

Using our free software, you have the ability to control the intensity of each individual LED. This gives you maximum control over the output of your solar simulator lamp. Our solar simulator is also available within our solar cell testing kit to equip your laboratory with a fully integrated PV characterization system.

Solar Simulator Features


Wide UV-Vis-NIR spectral range

Powerful LED Lamp

The Ossila Solar Simulator uses light-emitting diodes to reliably and accurately reproduce the solar spectrum. LEDs offer high efficiency, a long lifetime, good temporal stability, zero maintenance, spectral tunability, ozone-free operation, and no explosion risk.

Modular Design

Modular Design

The modular design gives you the freedom to create a solar testing system that fits into your laboratory. Various accessories and kits designed around the solar simulator suit different substrates, device architecture, and measurement needs.

Easy-to-Use Software

Easy-to-Use Software

By default, the lamp will deliver a calibrated output optimized to meet the solar spectrum. Our free, downloadable software allows you to control the LED outputs individually as well as change the total irradiance output. This is useful for specialist measurements or non-conventional spectral output.

Compact Design, Adaptable Functionality

Compact Design, Adaptable Functionality

The small footprint is perfect for high-density laboratories and it can also be used in closer spaces where space is limited, such as a glove box*, or in a laminar flow hood. With its own optical breadboard included, it can be placed on any work top, or even fixed to larger optical benches.

* Not for use in volatile environments.


The Ossila Solar Simulator is AAA rated for small area devices, which is ideal if you already use our 20 mm x 15 mm substrates. The Ossila Solar Simulator also delivers class ABA illumination over a larger area (25mm diameter). This is suitable for testing large area devices which can be made on our 25 mm x 25 mm substrate systems. We individually calibrate each system with a NIST traceable photo radiometer and include a performance report with each unit. Click on the image below to download a sample certificate.
