Effects of Dye Loading Conditions on the Energy Conversion Efficiency of ZnO and TiO2 Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells
Dose Control System
The Dose Control System is an integral part of conducting precision sunlight exposure testing. The Dose Control System allows the monitoring and controlling of the output of the 16S-002. It accumulates the amount of light being outputted and alerts you when your preset dose has been reached. This features allows you to expose a precise amount of light to the solar cell.
