Better Testing for Solar Panels

NIST has developed new procedures to better test solar panels

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a new process to test the performance of solar panels. It involves 32 different LEDs, each one generating their part of the spectrum of sunlight, and other equipment that measures the wavelength-dependent quantum efficiency. The new testing system will be used in two ways. The first is to run every LED by itself for …
