Spectroscopy for Photovoltaics Materials Analysis

Spectroscopy techniques were used to analyze the reflectivity of proprietary coated glass samples for thin film photovoltaic panels, conducted within a range of 1200-2100 nm under ambient lab conditions. Our spectrometers evaluate reflectivity aids in understanding light loss areas in photovoltaic panels, crucial for enhancing energy conversion efficiency through materials like anti-reflective coatings and glass dopants.

Ocean Optics provides multiple spectrometer types designed to meet the needs of energy industry partners.
