Latimer Energy Lab

The Latimer Energy Laboratory (LEL) supports a very wide range of activities relating to photovoltaics (PV), from K-12 outreach through graduate engineering.

The laboratory focuses on measurement of solar radiation, measurement and characterization of artificial light sources, study of physical characteristics of PV cells, and electrical characteristics, including I-V curves. Instrumentation includes: pyranometers, VIS-IR spectrometers, metallurgical microscopes, source meters, and related computers.
