|Abstract:||Spectrally resolved measurements of the solar irradiation are needed to assess the outdoor performance of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) technologies that employ GaAs based multi-junction cells. One coarse technique for obtaining such data – without the need to operate a full spectroradiometer system – is to measure the current output of different junctions of multi-junction cells. Specially prepared component or ‘isotype’ cells having the same optical characteristic as the whole multi-junction device but with the electrical characteristics of one single sub-cell are commonly used for this purpose. Although this provides a convenient way to measure the solar spectrum appropriate for CPV technologies that use such cells, the present literature lacks detailed comparisons of these sensors against high quality spectroradiometer systems. In this work we evaluate two different sets of isotype sensors and compare with data from an OL750 spectroradiometer.|
