Linseis introduces new LSR-1
With the new LSR-1 from Linseis Messgeräte GmbH, thermoelectric materials, such as those used in sensors or Peltie elements, can be characterized easily and conveniently in the form of solid materials and thin films. In the basic version – New LSR-1 – both the Seebeck coefficient and the electrical resistivity can be measured fully automatically and simultaneously from -160°C to 200°C. The basic version can be supplemented by a gas detector. The basic version can be extended with a gas dosing system, sample illumination and a cryo option.
The new LSR-1 system allows the characterization of metallic and semiconducting samples according to the well-known Van der Pauw method (resistivity) as well as the Seebeck coefficient by gradient sweep and linear regression.
Thin films, which can be measured with the new LSR-1, can be found in semiconductor technology, the production of liquid crystal displays (LCD) and many other applications of nanotechnology such as solar modules, the production of sensors or medical technology.
The scientific instruments of Linseis Messgeräte GmbH are based on more than 50 years of experience in the development of laboratory instruments for materials research and development as well as quality control. Our technologies enable the precise measurement of parameters from classical thermal analysis, e.g. the measurement of weight changes and linear expansion under the influence of temperature, as well as the determination of thermophysical material properties such as thermal conductivity. Linseis measuring instruments are used worldwide by scientists and engineers in a wide variety of fields such as the chemical industry, the automotive industry, polymer research and the electronics industry. Our measuring instruments are used today to develop the materials of tomorrow.
