LEDs win Nobel Prize!

Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura receive the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics. Congratulations! Without their invention many products we use everyday would not be as good as they are today. Just like solar simulators. “Alfred Nobel would be happy to see LEDs, because they improve the way people live” commented the Nobel committee. Oh yes, this includes the solar cell industry. It benefits from LEDs because they improve the accuracy of the efficieny measurement and the production [...]

LED’s do better R&D!

Fraunhofer seems to enjoy working with our LED solar simulator 
SINUS-220. Only a few months after commissioning the solar simulator, 
Dr. Marko Turek and his team of Fraunhofer present their R&D work at the largest European scientific PV-conference, EU-PVSEC, held 22.-26. September 2014 in Amsterdam (https://www.photovoltaic-conference.com). Turek et al look at the correct measurement of the series resistance, one of the key loss mechanisms of solar cells. And when you want to do a correct measurement, WAVELABS’ accurate and [...]

LED’s copy the rainbow!

Summer in Germany, this means sunshine AND rain. Two days ago, when we came back from our lunch break, sunshine and rain joined forces and created this wonderful rainbow which hit the roof of our factory in Leipzig beautifully and very gently. The colors of the sun. We went inside, copied the rainbow color by color with our LED solar simulator, and picked up work with a big smile.

Konrad is again a genious and socially minded!

In July 2013, school boy Konrad joined us for a day for the first time, see our post from July 9, 2013 “Corporate social responsibility of a start-up”. He donated his salary to the fundraising activity “genial sozial”. This project funds aid projects worldwide. Konrad liked the idea of genialsozial and the work with us so much that he came back in 2014! Wow, he changed quite a bit, he is 17 now. This time he did some real [...]

Silver medal goes to … WAVELABS!

WAVELABS was awarded the Silver medal of the innovation contest “IQ Innovationspreis”. 40 companies were in the race in the cluster Energy/Ecology/Solar in one of the most prestigious award of the German states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. With companies like Siemens, RWE and Envia on the board, the second place feels like winning an Oscar! http://www.iq-mitteldeutschland.de/iq/wettbewerb/wettbewerb.html

LED’s flash for Fraunhofer

Joseph Fraunhofer was knighted by King Maximilian II of Bavaria in 1824. His Optical Institute was widely recognized as the world’s leading producer of fine optics. Fraunhofer invented the spectroscope so that he could characterize the quality of his glass products with far greater precision than ever before. Fast forward 200 years, and the institute that bears Fraunhofer’s name has adopted another revolutionary device — but this time, the innovation comes from us. The high accuracy and flexibility were [...]

Fraunhofer CSP catches the LED wave

You are the company you keep, which is why WAVELABS couldn’t be more proud to announce its future cooperation with Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics CSP. With the help of the renowned institution’s PV module expertise, advanced WAVELABS LED technology is now set to revolutionize module testing with the new SINUS-2100 solar simulator. The recent launch of WAVELABS’ SINUS-220 put the spotlight on LEDs as the future of solar simulation for PV cells. But that’s just one piece of [...]
