Solar spectrum


Also found in: Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
the spectrum of solar light, especially as thrown upon a screen in a darkened room. It is characterized by numerous dark lines called Fraunhofer lines.

At each end of the solar spectrum the chemist can detect the presence of what are known as 'actinic' rays.
But the three zones mingle and amalgamate along the edges, like the colors in the solar spectrum.
The Impact These perovskite nanocrystals can absorb light throughout the visible region of the solar spectrum.
In this paper, we propose a numerical simulation based on experimental results of calculated solar spectrum allowing us to study the effect of dust on the solar cells, from calculated solar spectrum resulting from the forced dust deposition on a piece of glass, a numerical simulation is done on CZTS solar cell and other solar cells like CIGS and a-Si to choose the best technology adapted to the dusty environment.
TSIS] measurements of the solar spectrum are three times more accurate than previous instruments.
While it is highly IR-reflective, it is extremely opaque in the visible and UV parts of the solar spectrum.
It is very IR-reflective and extremely opaque in the visible and UV parts of the solar spectrum.

Solar Spectrum, a company that provides technology-driven solar energy solutions to residential and commercial customers, has merged with Temecula, California-based Horizon Solar Power.
Masdar Institute said the novel product, developed in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), absorbs nearly 100 per cent of the sunlight's energy from the ultraviolet and visible portions of the solar spectrum.
While the photo-catalytic degradation of dyes has been investigated for several decades, it is only relatively recently that researchers have developed materials capable of absorbing the visible part of the solar spectrum - other materials, such as titanium dioxide, are also able to break down dyes using solar energy, but their efficiency is limited as they only absorb higher energy, ultra-violet light.
Electrical efficiency is dependent on the optical, thermal, and electrical characteristics of the STPV window, as well as the climatic conditions, air mass, solar spectrum, and solar angle of incidence (Duffie and Beckman 2006).
