Low Cost Solar Simulators

SciSun Solar Simulator - Sciencetech

Sciencetech Low Cost Solar Simulators


Sciencetech is proud to offer our newly improved line of Low Cost Solar Simulator Systems, based on small area lenses. Sciencetech offers two lines (SF and SciSun) of solar simulators that produce up to 2 Sun (AM1.5G), depending on the selected model.

At the heart of a Sciencetech Solar Simulator, a xenon arc lamp, housing, a special optical assembly, power supply with igniter, filter holder and manual shutter are included. SF solar simulators also include UV fused silica lenses for higher UV emission.

These systems are complete plug-and-play operable and come with easily configurable, touchscreen power supply and control software. Class AAA Solar Simulator spectral matching, spatial non-uniformity, and temporal instability are conformed to ASTM, IEC and JIS standards.


SciSun Solar Simulator Series

(Previously Sciencetech SLB Solar Simulator series)


The most cost-effective solar simulator on the market. The SciSun comes with an adjustable beam turner mounted at the output to direct the beam at any 90 grades angle: down or up, left or right. Designed for 150 - 300W Xenon arc lamps.


Class AAA solar simulation in accordance with ASTM, IEC, and JIS
2 inch x 2 inch (50mm x 50mm) target area illumination
Up to 2 suns irradiance
Provides a manual variable attenuator to adjust from 0.1–2 suns



AM1.5G Spectral Match

SF Solar Simulator Series



Sciencetech SF Series offers Highly Collimated Beam Solar Simulators for applications requiring a more collimated beam or more UV production. Sciencetech SF Solar Simulator include an arc lamp housing, 1 arc lamp, touchscreen power supply with igniter, and filter holder. 


Class AAA solar simulation (AM1.5G)
High collimation: 1 degree half angle collimation
Up to 2 inch (50mm) diameter target area
AM1.5G and AM0 spectral match
