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 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 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 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 characterise your devices thanks to the software-controlled automatic switching of pixels under test in each device.

Rapid device characterisation with the Ossila Solar Cell I-V software

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 cell testing kit, you can be confident that reliable device metrics are only a few clicks away.

Key Features

Integrated system

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

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

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

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

LED Solar Simulator
Compatible with our popular range of PV substrates

Automated Testing Kit

The solar cell testing kit gives you everything you need to start testing solar cells immediately at incredible value. The Solar Cell I-V test system and the solar simulator lamp are already positioned into a fully integrated system, so you can start testing your solar cells immediately with no need for any additional calibration.

The automated I-V testing unit can be controlled easily using our free Solar Cell I-V software, allowing you to start measuring solar cell performance within minutes.

Included with the Automated Solar Cell Testing Kit

The Automated Solar Cell Testing Kit can be compatible with

Manual Testing Kit

The solar cell testing kit will set you up with a versatile PV characterization set-up which can be easily integrated and adapted for your lab environment.

You can use each component of this kit separately, to get maximum use out of each element. Whenever needed, they can be simply and easily integrated together. Once set up, it can be used as easily as the automated kit.

You can easily test devices made on multiple different substrates by varying the test board.

Included with the Manual Solar Cell Testing Kit

The Manual Solar Cell Testing Kit can be compatible with
