Calorimetric method for the determination of radiation power of the solar-simulated light sources has been proposed. The application of the differential scanning calorimetry guarantees very high sensitivity (1 mW) of the measuring property, independent of the wavelength (within 300-1200 nm). The applied method yields reliable calibration curves of the radiation power vs. wavelength with good accuracy.
