Solar Research Laboratory

The Solar Research Laboratory: studies the sun as a source of quasi-eternal solar energy as well as the study of the sun as a body physicist as one of the stars. It studies the solar cells and solar laser technology, as well as the studies related to solar activity and the solar spectrum. Tracking the various solar phenomena and doing physical models. In addition, the study of astronomy, as well as archaeological Islamic astronomy is also important specialties. Study the relationship between the sun and the earth, the sun, and the effects of the space environment on the content of the satellites and the impact on the progress in space projects.

Solar Radiation Record

The Solar Radiation record has now been developed with the addition and replacement of new devices obtained to record the various solar radiation compounds (total, direct and diffused) at different wavelengths as well as the solar brightness rate device and the station is equipped to operate automatically and remote control.

Voyager Telescope

A Voyager telescope with an Hα filter and a high-resolution digital camera were attached to the Kodie telescope to take periodic observations in the Hα range to observe solar phenomena seen only in white light such as the Flare and Prominence and their variability with the solar activity cycle.

Solar Cell Tester

In the field of solar energy, a high temperature control unit has been added to the Solar Cell Tester to conduct accurate experiments on solar cells in different climates.

Hydrogen production device

Hydrogen production device with fuel burn cell was obtained to conduct advanced experiments to produce hydrogen gas using electrolyzer through electrolysis of water and use of solar cells as electrolytic supply of the analyzer. To produce direct electrical energy for home use

    • The Qibla of many mosques in different governorates was determined before the construction of the building and then confirmed after the construction, as well as the Qibla correction of some of the mosques to take the right direction of prayer.


    • Observed the  Arab months of the Hijri year and the current and that the monitoring site at the Institute and other places throughout the Republic.


    • The partial and total lunar eclipse was monitored.


    • Measurements and analysis of some samples of solar cells in the photovoltaic research unit in the laboratory for one of the projects of the Egyptian space program at the National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences, to study the harmful effects of space radiation on the components of the Egyptian satellite.

    • The value of solar radiation falling on different governorates was evaluated to start the project of using and utilizing solar energy as clean alternative energy.
