Steady-state and dynamic electro-optical tests on hybrid organic-inorganic photovoltaic (PV) devices, when properly performed, can give advanced knowledge on physical parameters like charge carrier diffusion length or recombination times at the active layer/selective contact interface. Space applications require special attention to environmental conditions. Cicci Research developed a fully integrated platform (Arkeo) with plug&play modules coupled with advanced environmental chambers. The internal rack mount system of Arkeo allows for expansion of its functionalities with several Eurocard-based modules: fully addressable active Peltier control boards, LED driver units (350-980 nm), 4-quadrant Source Meter Units and fiber-based spectrometer. The size of the chambers ranges from 30 x 30 mm especially suited for single substrate(1 to N pixels) to large format (150 to 300 mm) suited for modules or multiple substrates.
