Abstract PLatypus is an open-source, multi-camera nighttime photoluminescence imaging system. It is a non-contact, low-profile, low-cost, very-high-resolution alternative to existing field imaging techniques. PLatypus can collect a ~100-megapixel image of a PV module in a few seconds, with no electrical connection.
