And Then There Were Two in SERIS!

The Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) has recently purchased and commissioned their second SINUS-220 LED solar simulator. Solar cell IV measurements with the first tool has been a hit at the Singaporean lab since early 2014. The second tool will bolster the IV cell testing capabilities (Busbarless, Multi Busbars) and double capacity of the popular WAVELABS solar simulators at SERIS. Check out this recent video showcasing the latest and greatest at SERIS in Singapore. WAVELABS’ SINUS-220 enters the scene [...]

How important is as-grown silicon material quality on solar cell efficiency? LEDs ask Dr Bernhard Mitchell

Dr Bernhard Mitchell, a semiconductor physicist and an expert in the solar PV sector has recently authored an interesting paper answering this question.  Find out how PL imaging can be used to improve photovoltaic silicon, tighten production variance and increase solar cell efficiency. Read the paper in full here. Bernhard works in R&D with WAVELABS Solar Metrology Systems GmbH in Germany and is acting Sales Manager for BTimaging in Europe. WAVELABS is BT Imaging’s sales and service partner in [...]

Next Gen Module Solar Simulator Now at Fraunhofer CSP

Fraunhofer CSP has another shiny new flasher from WAVELABS in its metrology lab, and it comes powered by 18 LED channels, housed by 60 light engines perfectly engineered and meticulously flashing onto a 2m x 1m surface.  The engineers at WAVELABS have done it again with the nearly 3m tall and 6m wide SINUS-2100p.  A class A+++ spectrum with flash times up to continuous light sets a new standard for module flashers in the solar industry.  Wondering what your solar [...]

LED’s have a great lunar new year

China has doubled the number of installed WAVELABS SINUS-220 systems in 2017, with early signs that this could be a feat repeated by early 2018! Three of the six members of the Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) have now made the switch to our LED solar simulators. Singapore, the tropical solar friendly city-state will be home to at least 3 new SINUS-220s this year, with SERIS making a repeat order for their lab. Further south, the University of New [...]

LED’s characterISE this as a win-win

Fraunhofer ISE, one of the world’s most important solar PV research institutes and home to the renowned CalLab, has purchased a SINUS-220 LED solar simulator. The WAVELABS flasher will initially be used for characterisation. Depending on the results, future calibration duties are not out of the question. Fraunhofer ISE is hoping to benefit from advantages of LED technology including improved temporal stability of spectrum and reduced maintenance. It’s fantastic to see them acquiring WAVELABS technology, however they choose to [...]

Three’s a (fairly collegial) crowd

Our own Torsten Brammer was on hand for pv magazine’s latest equipment roundtable discussion together with Vahid Fakhfouri from Meyer Burger and Klaus Ramspeck from Halm. The trio comprised one proponent each for: conventional xenon based technology (Halm), xenon and hybrid LED/xenon flashers (Meyer Burger), and purely LED-based simulators (WAVELABS). The experts engaged in friendly debate, with all agreeing industry standards have fallen hopelessly behind the times. But it wasn’t allpeace & love. Read the interview and see Torsten [...]

Flurry of Media Coverage Puts WAVELABS in LED Spotlight

WAVELABS is no stranger to media exposure. The startup can be seen often enough on the pages of major professional journals such as pv magazine and photon. But with the latest article published in Germany’s Leipziger Volkszeitung — a daily newspaper with a circulation of over 190,000 — the innovators from Saxony have found themselves featured in the mainstream German press. Our CEO Dr. Torsten Brammer says he refuses to let fame and fortune distract the company from launching [...]
