Alfred University has committed to producing a world-class solar simulation testing facility.
Sciencetech has previously supplied solar equipment to their research facilities, but for this project, Alfred wanted something truly unique and custom manufactured.
The initial design called for an enormous amount of solar radiation to be focused onto a small spot, creating what is usually called a “spot furnace”. While Sciencetech has some experience running individually powerful lamps for solar simulator designs, this conflux of light was a novel application. The end user required to have almost 4000 suns at a target area of 10cm
