Just when Italy becomes a leading player in aerospace research, IREM confirms itself as a leader in the production of igniters for powering short arc Xenon lamps for solar simulation technology.

The areas of use of Xenon lamps range from aerospace research to scientific research up to industrial processes and material qualification.

solar simulation: Xenon lamps
In the context of solar simulation, the light source is fundamental: typically consisting of a powerful Xenon gas discharge lamp capable of emitting white light very close to the solar spectrum (about 6000 K) whose performance, duration and stability depend on the quality of the power supplies and igniters used to power it.
