Isotype Cell Collimator
This system enables direct beam sunlight to shine onto 3 temperature-controlled isotype photovoltaic cells. The stray radiation is rejected via 3 collimator tubes which were designed in accordance with ASTM E1125. To minimize thermal effects, the 3 isotype cells are mounted on a liquid-cooled thermal chuck.
Surya Design handled all aspects of this project from design to final deployment, including the mechanical design.
