Solar simulators

from Quantum Design

High pressure Xe arc lamps make excellent artificial sources to simulate sunlight. The high color temperature of the xenon lamps (6050 to 6350 K) is a close match to the solar temperature. This results in similar spectra in the UV and VIS although the lamp has some Xe emission lines in the near IR. The Xe lamp spectrum must be filtered to match various atmospheric conditions. Our simulators include filters to tailor the spectrum and give good matching to standard spectra. The matching is better in the UV and VIS than in the IR.
