Radiometers for Measuring Circumsolar Profiles

March 25, 2020


Low-cost, portable, and reliable solution for radiation measurement

Technology Overview

Solar radiation on the earth’s surface is not only due to the direct radiation from the solar disk but also from an aureole around the solar disk. The inability to accurately measure radiation results in inefficiencies in solar power generation. The radiometers developed helps to establish optical design parameters that impact the thermodynamic performance, and consequently the economic outcomes, of solar power generation systems.
