Solar Energy Laboratory:

Centre for Energy also houses a solar energy lab for dedicated research towards development and testing of thin films for solar cells. Demonstration unit for efficient use of solar energy, characterization and study of the photovoltaic module, energy spectrum measuring facility, spectral response/ photoconductivity/ quantum efficiency and other transport measurements in the presence of light of photovoltaic modules, materials and devices. A facility for preparation of thin films by physical vapor deposition method is also available. The facilities in our solar energy lab can be outlined as -

CHARACTERIZATION AND STUDY OF THE PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULE

ENERGY SPECTRUM MEASURING FACILITY

SPECTRAL RESPONSE/ PHOTOCONDUCTIVITY/ QUANTUM

EFFICIENCY AND OTHER TRANSPORT MEASUREMENTS IN THE PRESENCE OF LIGHT OF PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULES, MATERIALS AND DEVICES
