A new tunable light source that will boost the development of photovoltaic technologies

An ICMAB-CSIC team has developed and patented an illumination device with a customised spectrum, which can change the intensity and range of colours, depending on every single application. It allows for the complete characterisation of optoelectronic materials and devices with a single device. Winner of the EmErgEnt award, the device will boost the development of many photovoltaic technologies. Scientists are now looking for industrial partners.
