AlInGaP LEDs are widely used in illumination applications as automotive and signalization due their low consumption and high durability. In order to verify the high durability data it is necessary to consider not only catastrophic failures but also degradation. In this work LEDs degradation at different temperature and drive current accelerated tests have(More)
A temperature stress test was carried out on GaAs single-junction solar cells to analyze the degradation suffered when working at ultra-high concentrations. The acceleration of the degradation was realized at two different temperatures: 130 °C and 150 °C. In both cases, the degradation trend was the same, and only gradual failures were observed. A fit of(More)
Accelerated testing is a necessary tool in order to demonstrate the reliability of concentration photovoltaic solar cells, devices which is expected to be working not less than 25 years. Many problems arise when implementing high temperature accelerated testing in this kind of solar cells, because the high light irradiation level, at which they work, is(More)
This work analyzes the long-term functionality of HP (High-power) UV-LEDs (Ultraviolet Light Emitting Diodes) as the exciting light source in non-contact, continuous 24/7 real-time fluoro-sensing pollutant identification in inland water. Fluorescence is an effective alternative in the detection and identification of hydrocarbons. The HP UV-LEDs are more(More)
On the basis of our new simultaneous photome-try and spectroscopy (885 uvby differential measurements in 11 nights and 154 spectrograms of the FeIIλ4508 region in 5 nights), we can detect 12 probable periodicities in the variability pattern of this star, determining the frequencies of 7 without any ambiguity. Through a direct fit of pulsational models to(More)
The effects of soil drying on leaf water relations and gas exchange were studied in quinoa grown in pots with sandy soil and in lysimeter plots with sandy loam in the field. Midday values of leaf water potential (cl), leaf osmotic potential (cp), relative water content (RWC), leaf conductance (gl), light saturated net photosynthesis (Asat), and specific(More)
Concentrator photovoltaic is an emergent technology that may be a good economical and efficient alternative for the generation of electricity at a competitive cost. However, the reliability of these new solar cells and systems is still an open issue due to the high-irradiation level they are subjected to as well as the electrical and thermal stresses that(More)
