Spire receives DOE grant to develop LED based solar simulator


The company says that this project will develop a next generation solar simulator, based on LED technology. It adds that an LED based system could provide advantages of accuracy, reliability, versatility and cost. Spectral, intensity and spatial uniformity variations could be achieved easily with system software and control electronics.

"We're pleased that DOE selected Spire for this grant," said Roger G. Little, chairman and CEO of Spire Corporation. "Our simulators are used by most major module manufacturers throughout the world and numerous international testing facilities, so we continuously strive to improve and advance the technology."
