Atlas Material Testing Technology (Chicago, Ill.) has introduced a new system for ultra-accelerated exposure testing. This new outdoor testing device can provide approximately 63 years of South Florida UV radiation exposure in a single year. Atlas developed this new solar concentrator technology in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Russian Institute of Laser Optical Technology (ILOT) under a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) program. The device tracks the sun while concentrating reflected sunlight on test specimens mounted in a target area. It uses an ultra-accelerated concentrator that allows for very high concentrations of UV energy without excessive heating of test samples. UV energy can be variably concentrated on a target area approximately 100 mm by 100 mm (3.9 by 3.9 inches).
