About Angstrom

Founded in 2011, Angstrom Designs Inc. develops advanced testing and calibration processes that provide prime contractors, solar panel integrators and photovoltaic (PV) researchers with the most accurate and thorough analytics of their panels, coupons and cells. We consist of a diverse group of engineers whose expertise in systems design for automated instrumentation, control, test and measurement has pushed the envelope with space-grade solar cell research and development.

Our patented programmable LED solar simulator (pLEDss) technology addresses the challenging testing requirements of multi-junction solar cells. This technology enables rapid measurement and automated acquisition of solar cell and string performance with more capability and flexibility than the current state of practice.

Casey Hare

Founder and Chief Technology Officer

Casey holds two Bachelor of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. He invented Angstrom’s patented programmable LED solar simulator (pLEDss) and has made significant aerospace contributions — including roles as lead engineer for NASA’s Crew Exploration Vehicle solar array and as principal investigator for Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Mars Dust Removal program.

Additionally, Casey has directed the solar array effort for the Communications/Navigation Outage Forecasting System rebuild program and led over a dozen NASA Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs. Casey taught system design at the University of California at Santa Barbara from 2004 to 2019, holds six patents with five pending applications, and serves as secretary of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Solar Cells and Solar Panels Committee on Science.
