As of now the worldwide solar research community has a unique new tool: Synlight is a high-flux solar simulator of a new performance category. It bridges the gap between laboratory scale tests and demonstration, and offers large-scale testing opportunities for up to three independently operating test campaigns. Following the commissioning and opening in March, 2017, the facility has been validated recently. The gained results met or exceeded the expectations from simulation and prototype. In particular, solar radiation powers of up to 310kW with a simultaneous peak flux of 12.5MW/m² could be measured.
