Abstract:

An experimental study of a portable intensity and uniformity monitor for solar simulators is presented. The monitor is a modified integrating sphere coated with MgO and utilizes a thermopile as the detector. The radiation wavelengths used in evaluating the monitor were generated by a carbon arc solar simulator. These data were obtained as a function of time, intensity, temperature, and uniformity. The theory and operation of the monitor employed in these experiments are discussed. A modification of this monitor for use as a reflectometer is also presented.
