Abstract: An optical setup for current mapping of photovoltaic devices is presented. It is based on a digital micro-mirror device (DMD) and a small number of additional optical elements making the implementation simple and cost effective. The specific properties of the DMD chip enable the application of two different sampling methods; point by point sampling and compressive sampling. Both sampling strategies are compared and cases when each one of them performs better are investigated. It is shown that compressive sampling can significantly enhance weak current signals and provide current maps in the cases when the point by point current signal is below the noise threshold.
