A new high-flux solar simulator, capable of delivering up to 75 kW of continuous radiative power at peak fluxes exceeding 4250 is operational at the ETH-Zurich. Its optical design and performance are described. This unique facility serves principally as an experimental platform for investigating thermal and thermochemical processes at temperatures up to 3000°K.
