Argon for test series


Argon for test series

Concentrated research

A solar furnace bundles the Sun’s rays 5000-fold; a high-flux solar simulator concentrates solar radiation 10,000-fold.
 
Argon is needed here for scientific studies – for the manufacture of liquid fuels from water, CO2 and concentrated sunlight, for example. Solar furnaces are also used for testing in the fields of chemistry, energy technology and materials science.
