NIST develops the testing, measurements, and reference materials needed to ensure the quality of energy-related products and services and ensure fairness in the marketplace.
Reference solar cells are devices used for characterizing and calibrating light sources and other solar devices. Their performance hinges on their ability to consistently measure specific types of light with high accuracy. A new NIST calibration service, the quality of which is reinforced by traceability to SI units, can help ensure that reference cells provide accurate readings under a variety of scenarios, such as outdoors, indoors or in space.
