Stress-Test Platform for Degradation Analysis of LEDs and Solar Cells

Overview

Litos is an advanced solar cell and LED stability lifetime measurement system. It has 8, 16, or 32 parallel stressing channels distributed over 4 sealed chambers. Each chamber has an individual temperature and illumination control. The wide range of stress conditions and the possibility of interfacing Litos with Paios for in-depth degradation analysis, make it a primary choice for researchers that want to understand the degradation behavior of organic, perovskite, and quantum-dots based solar cells and LEDs.

Sample Holder

Litos has 4 independent chambers to test simultaneously 4 samples with multiple pixels. The sample holders are custom-made according to the specific layout of our customers. Multiple boards with different layouts can be delivered. The board can be quickly replaced in the testing chamber by the user. Depending on the selected configuration, up to 8 solar cells or LEDs can be stressed individually in each chamber (32 solar cells in total).

Litos/Paios Integration

combined characterization hardware to perform stability tests and understand the degradation  mechanisms in perovskite solar cells

Paios and Litos can be connected and managed by the same software (Characterization Suite). Full characterization of the device stability can be automatically performed in situ:

  • Understanding the degradation mechanisms of solar cells and LEDs with an automated routine of stressing and analysis.

  • Current-Voltage (I-V) characteristics.

  • Transient measurements (CELIV, TPV, TPC, TEL …)

  • Impedance spectroscopy / CV / IMPS / IMVS.

  • All measurements can be performed as a function of the temperature ( 0°C to 85°C).
