Abstract:

Solar radiation in the wavelength region of 2000 angstroms down to 500 angstroms consists of two spectral ranges 1 2000 to 1600 angstroms wavelength range consists of a continuum characterized by the 4500K black body radiation curve 2 1600 to 500 angstroms wavelength range consists of lines and a blend of lines spectra particularized by the spectral line of Lyman Alpha 1215.7A. Sources for simulating and detectors for detecting the solar ultraviolet radiation in the wavelength range of interest are described in some detail. Source operating parameters and detector calibration techniques have been developed and are readily adaptable for solar simulation in the wavelength range of 2000 to 500 angstroms. Author
