Instrument: QE/IPCE Instrument
Model: QE-PV-SI Measurement Kit, dc mode (Newport/Oriel Instruments)
Location: Conte B-523
Description: The instrument consists of a 150 W Xe arc lamp, monochromator and a calibrated silicon reference cell with power meter. It is used for Quantum efficiency (QE)/Incident Photon to Charge Carrier Efficiency (IPCE) measurement for solar cells, detectors, or any other photon-to-charge converting device over the 400 - 1100 nm spectral range. Two configurations of the instrument, in a dc and ac modes, allow for testing photovoltaic devices with long photo-response times and with low power conversion efficiencies, respectively. The current device configuration is "dc".
