Luzchem’s CCP-SolSim2 is a fully computer controlled photoreactor providing solar simulating radiation in the UV and Visible regions using a powerful 300W ceramic xenon lamp and enclosed in a standard photoreactor cabinet.
The CCP-SolSim2 illuminates a circle of approximately 6.0” in diameter which approximates the spectrum and intensity of the AM1.5 solar spectrum over the 280-850 nm range when used in the recommended illumination configuration.
The custom software allows computer control of the lamp shutter and timed experiments.
The CCP-SunSensor measures power relative to the AM1.5 spectrum and allows total power matching with AM1.5 over 3 different wavelength ranges. With Luzchem’s CCP-SolSim2, the lamp power is computer controlled, correcting for changes to the lamp output power that naturally occur as a lamp ages to ensure AM1.5 simulation is achieved.
Users should also anticipate variations in this range when using a new xenon lamp.
- Power at minimum: ≈50% of AM1.5
- To achieve AM1.5 power setting ≈30%
- Maximum achievable (new lamp, center) ≈1.5 times AM1.5
