For absolute data, you will need the absolute action spectrum; the relative spectrum is adequate to compare simulators with solar spectra. Convenient definitions of spectral regions include UVA, UVB, UVC, visible and infrared, (also sometimes divided into IR-A and IR-B).

If you need to estimate the total irradiance in a wavelength interval not bounded by the tabulated values then you can use simple geometry to calculate the area under the curve for your wavelength interval.

0000053895 00000 n These tables allow you to calculate the irradiance for any wavelength ranges coinciding with the tabulated values. We use simple scaling of the axes to find CE, and AC. it is usually more sensible to work with an AM1GH solar spectral irradiance The spectral irradiance at any wavelength, Eλ, is in units of watts per square meter per nm (W m-2 nm-1). However, since.
