The largest artificial Sun in the world

Syn­light con­sists of a to­tal of 149 high-pow­er light sources, each of which is a sev­en-kilo­watt xenon short-arc lamp, as used in cin­e­ma pro­jec­tors. Each source can be in­di­vid­u­al­ly con­trolled, which al­lows var­i­ous con­fig­u­ra­tions and tem­per­a­tures in the fo­cal point – even in three si­mul­ta­ne­ous ex­per­i­ments.

Synlight consists of a total of 149 high-power light sources, each of which is a seven-kilowatt xenon short-arc lamp, as used in cinema projectors. Each source can be individually controlled, which allows various configurations and temperatures in the focal point – even in three simultaneous experiments.
