Spectral Responsivity Measurements

The response of small-scale PV devices to quasi-monochromatic light is measured using a custom-built over-illumination system. The measurement setup is filter based and covers the range from 337 nm to 1300 nm. Over-illumination has the advantage of replicating the conditions during I-V measurements and results in a better Mismatch Factor Correction.
