DLR solar sintering / solar simulator


The image shows the current setup to perform solar sintering

  • 3-axis movable table
  • Xenon lamps, positioned behind a metallic shutter
  • Water-cooled mirror to reflect light onto the regolith
  • A powder feeder and powder supplier (soon to be replaced by a more accurate system)
  • An extractor hood to remove fine particles of regolith released into the air during sintering process
