Spectral Response Measurement Apparatus
Model: HO-AE-SR18

Spectral response is the ratio of the current generated by the solar cell to the power incident on the solar cell or a detector. Spectral response measurement apparatus measures short circuit current of solar cell at selected wavelengths over a broad range of wavelengths.

HOLMARC's Spectral response measurement system (Model NO: HOAE-SR18) is capable of measuring the spectral response of any kind of photovoltaic devices, such as single or multi junction solar cells or sensors in an area up to 30mm2. Measurements can be taken in the wavelength range from 360 to 1100 nm at a resolution of 1nm. Current, normalized with respect to light power versus wavelength gives spectral response of the cell. Spectral response is directly related to external quantum efficiency. The measurements can be performed by interfacing to a computer.

Third party Source Measure Unit with (SMU) can be used for the measurement of the current through, and also to apply the voltage to, the sample. Holmarc also supply a complete solar cell characterization system (Model HO-SC-QEIV) which has internal source measure circuit to perform both IV and spectral response measurements.
