Ametek ModuLab XM Photoelectrochemical Test System

Expandable platform designed for research of solar cells and photovoltaics

Solar Test Systems’ ModuLab PhotoEchem XM is a configurable platform product that is used primarily by solar cell and photovoltaic researchers. The system, based upon Solartron Analytical’s world-leading experience in transfer function measurements, offers a high-quality measurement platform for characterizing a range of photoelectrochemical devices such as DSSC’s, Perovskite cells, and Photoanodes.”
ModuLab PhotoEchem XM is a potentiostat, frequency response analyzer (FRA), and PhotoEchem module that can be used to characterize solar cells, including Perovskite and Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC). The system also can be used for development of visible spectrum photoelectrochemical systems such as Iron-Oxide photo-splitting of water. This system includes a reference-grade potentiostat that makes it easy to use; all you have to do is click your mouse once! For experienced users, ModuLab PhotoEchem XM offers the ability to develop new experiment types with its powerful step sequencer.
