Organizational focus: The Sunlab Solar Research Lab (SUNLAB) is focused on developing high performance solar energy, optoelectronics, and photonics devices. 

Who they are: Housed at the University of Ottawa’s Centre for Research in Photonics, SUNLAB is a solar cell characterization research facility that focuses on several research themes including photovoltaic devices and systems, solar resources, smart adaptive grid edge systems and light emitting sources of energy.

What they offer: The SUNLAB has six solar simulators ranging from a 1-sun highly-collimated continuous source, to 1000-sun concentrator continuous source, to 5000-sun extreme-intensity flashed source. The lab analyzes devices and materials via electroluminescence, photoluminescence, and atomic force microscopy electrical modes.
