Using CryoLab to measure Seebeck coefficients: Video from DEMCON kryoz explains

The Seebeck effect is the direct conversion of temperature differences to electric voltage and vice versa. A thermoelectric device creates voltage when there is a different temperature on each side. Conversely, when a voltage is applied to it, it creates a temperature difference.

By using the CryoLab from DEMCON kryoz, it is possible to measure the Seebeck coefficient of a material sample, wire or thin film from 373 Kelvin down to cryogenic temperatures. In this informative video, DEMCON kryoz demonstrate how such measurements are made using their equipment. For more information, please contact us.

Lake Shore’s temperature sensor data is now online

Lake Shore is now offering all their temperature sensor information in one convenient online page. The new Sensors’ page contains links to:

  • Datasheets
  • Installation instructions
  • Application notes
  • Catalogue pages

Lake Shore logoOver the coming months, Lake Shore will migrate away from shipping calibration data CDs with calibrated sensors and will instead only offer this data via a portal accessible from the new page.

Data is currently available online for sensors shipped since the beginning of 2016, so if an existing CD is lost or damaged, the calibration data can be quickly downloaded providing you have the serial number of the relevant sensor on hand. Alternatively, contact Lake Shore Service for archived curves.

Lake Shore space-qualified sensors were on the hugely successful Cassini Huygens mission to Saturn that ended earlier this month.

Nearly twenty years of gathering temperature information in an extreme environment is a good advert for their sensors, and Elliot Scientific often supplies them to the aerospace industry and space scientists in the UK and Ireland.

Please contact us for more information.

Lake Shore’s Cryogenic Temperature Sensors now on elliotscientific.com

Lake Shore offers four types of sensor for cryogenic temperature measurement based on voltage (diodes) or resistance. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and these can be easily seen at-a-glance via our new Cryogenic Temperature Sensors page.

For example: Of the three most common NTC resistor materials, sputter-deposited zirconium oxy-nitride aka Cernox™ – the others being Germanium and Ruthenium Oxide (Rox™) – is the most versatile. Cernox™ thin film resistors are only manufactured by Lake Shore Cryotronics, and incorporated into robust sensor packages.

Cernox™ works over a broad temperature range, does not follow a standard curve, has sensitivity below 1 K, and is highly resistant to ionising radiation and magnetic field-induced errors. These features can be instantly seen on the page via our colourful graphics:

 0.1 to 420  ✘  ✔  ✔  ★★★ (1 K +)

In all, nine different temperature sensor materials are detailed and an informative datasheet is available to download. However, Elliot Scientific still recommends contacting us for expert advice on sensor choice for your application.
