For the detailed analysis of concentrator cells, Optosolar offers a spectral response setup that can generate bias light up to a concentration ratio of 700 suns and more.

 

For multijunction solar cells, this can be applied in multiple colours to choose the subcell that shall be measured.

 

To have a good signal to noise ratio between the bias light at 700 suns and the monochromatic light, a special high intensity narrow band tunable light source is in use. Under special circumstances, a monochromatic intensity of up to 50 mW (narrow band (!)) can be supplied to the solar cell.

 

Such a measurement configuration allows to analyse special processes in the semiconductor material at high injection level, at the ame time in a monochromatic resolution. For silicon cells, this can give information on field induced carrier collection (see publication at Paris PVSEC conference) and other material properties.
