A Complete System to Perform Solar Cell Characterization

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

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

The Ossila Solar Cell Testing Kit includes both a source measure unit and an LED-based solar simulator. It is an all-in-one solution for the rapid characterization of solar cells fabricated. 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 cell testing kit, you can be confident that reliable device metrics are only a few clicks away.

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

Solar Cell I-V Test System

The current-voltage measurement is controlled using intuitive and user-friendly PC software. All of the measurements can be fully customized, allowing you to tailor the software to your experiment.

Solar Cell I-V Software
Rapid device characterization with the Ossila Solar Cell I-V software

With the PC software, you can:

  1. Perform current-voltage measurements anywhere between -10 V and 10 V.
  2. Take high resolution measurements, with voltage increments as low as 170 µV.
  3. Manage the experiment more directly, with custom settle times between applying voltage and measuring current.
  4. Measure device hysteresis by perform consecutive measurements in forwards and backward directions.

Solar Simulator

The Ossila Solar Simulator Console enables you to control and customize the output of the Ossila Solar Simulator. You can choose the overall power level or control each LED in the Solar Simulator individually to tailor the output to your specific requirements.
