First CPVMatch journal paper submitted

Less than half a year after the start of CPVMatch the first journal paper has been submitted to Optics Express.

The manuscript features a test method and a test bench that measures spectrally resolved irradiance distribution for a concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) optical system. In conjunction with electrical I-V curves, it is a means to visualize and characterize the effects of chromatic aberration and nonuniform flux profiles under controllable testing conditions.
