Tunable Class AAA Large-Area LED Solar Simulator - Sunbrick™

The Sunbrick is designed for anyone requiring research-grade Class AAA quality light starting at 20 cm x  20 cm and beyond. Thanks to the Sunbricks module configurations, you can scale to any size by adding additional Sunbricks without sacrificing quality.

Here are a few reasons experts love using the Sunbrick:

  • Up to 36 software-controlled channels (depending on the model) allow you to explore the areas of the spectrum you are interested in.
  • With the click of a button, you can simulate any extraterrestrial or terrestrial solar spectra, such as AM 1.5G and AM0-AM10.
  • 2-year or 10,000-hour warranty.
  • No Bulbs, filters, or field calibrations are required!

Explore your future research ideas with current technology.

“The G2V system is able to autonomously characterize multiple devices at predetermined time-intervals while switching between resistive loads, monitor and adjust the device temperature, and control the intensity of the solar simulator.”

Ajan Ramachandran, Senior Optical Scientist, Rayleigh Solartech 

The Sunbrick’s Class AAA Standard

 The Sunbrick LED solar simulator, like our Pico small-area solar simulator, adheres to the IEC 60904-9:2020 solar simulator standards. Its wavelengths range from 350 nm to 1200 nm or 400 nm to 1500 nm, allowing experts to control the light their devices will see.

Stable light quality exceeding Class A Short-term Stability of <0.1% for 100 seconds and long-term temporal stability of <2% for 1000+ hours

Beyond the IEC Standards

While Class AAA is critical in understanding the performance of a solar simulator, what happens when two competing brands are the same? You go beyond the traditional standards of IEC and look at what makes the daily routine exciting again..

Standards beyond the quality standards experts want:

  • Python API software allows you to integrate new instruments into your existing testing, automate your sampling needs, and explore new research methods with Python programming.
  • Wireless connectivity allows you to access the device remotely and start your work before you arrive.
  • Multiple stand options to fit any lab space or need, such as vertical, horizontal, inverted illumination and glovebox.
  • Best of all, no consumable bulbs or filters free up your lab's prime work space!

Customization To Fit Your Needs

We can create custom presets to fit your needs. Common examples are custom spectrums to probe tandems, multi-junctions, or specific ranges for photochemistry applications.

Standard Variable Spectrum with ALL Sunbricks

 The Variable Spectra module allows complete spectral control with software-controlled intensity manipulation. The spectra are also dynamic, programmable, and flexible, making it possible to control up to 36 wavelengths to simulate almost any solar condition on or off Earth.

The Tileable Design

Your research should be able to scale to any size you require without sacrificing Class AAA quality. The Sunbrick does just that. Our tileable design allows us to pair sunbricks in square and rectangular formations to illuminate any size your research requires.

Here are a few standard module configurations:

1 x 2- As seen in the first image

1 x 3

2 x 2

3 x 3- As seen in the second image

12 x 11 - As seen as a snapshot of the build on the right

Plan your future research without being concerned about the size of the illumination.
