Synlight - The world's largest artificial sun
On 23 March 2017, the DLR Institute of Solar Research inaugurated the Synlight facility, a globally unique system. Each of its 149 Xenon short-arc lamps has the output of a large cinema projector. Together, they produce a light intensity that is 10,000 times the incident solar radiation on earth's surface.
The High-Flux Solar Furnace and the Solar Simulator
The DLR High-Flux Solar Furnace in Cologne-Porz generates highly concentrated sunlight for irradiation experiments. Its heliostat and concentrator mirrors bundle natural sunlight up to 5000 times and direct it into an experimental chamber.
Since 2013 scientists from three DLR institutes have been working interdisciplinarily on solutions for a sustainable energy supply at CeraStorE, the DLR competence center for ceramic materials and thermal storage technology in energy research.
Test facilities and test stands
The test facilities and test stands of the institute serve the experimental investigation of processes and components by means of concentrated solar radiation. They were developed in cooperation with industrial partners to fit specific needs.
