General informations

The LSR-1 System permits the characterization of metallic and semiconducting samples according to the well-known Van-der-Pauw (Resistivity) as well as static DC and slope Seebeck Coefficient measurement technique. It measures:

Electrical Resistivity and Seebeck Coefficient.

The compact desktop setup offers fully integrated sample holders for various temperature requirements. Optional low temperature (LN2) attachments and a heated version up to 200°C as well as a vacuum tight measurement chamber in combination with a selection of gas dosing systems ensures that all fields of application can be covered.

The comprehensive Windows based softwareprovides an easy to use user interface, includingwizards for setting up a measurement profile
and an integrated measurement data evaluation.

Measured parameters

• Resistivity / Conductivity (Ohm*cm / S/cm)
• Seebeck Coefficient (µV/K)

Key Features

• Modular system design. Can be upgraded with gas dosing system, illumination and Cryo-option

• Vacuum tight measurement chamber for measurements under defined atmospheres.

• Easy to use and exchangeable sample holders, with integrated primary and secondary heater.

• Integrated state of the art measurement electronics provides most accurate results for challenging samples.

• The unit can be used for simultaneous measurement of both Seebeck Coefficient and Electric Resistance (Resistivity).

• The sample holder uses a special contact mechanism, permitting measurement of high reproducibility.

• V-I plot measurement can be made to judge if the sensor is in good contact with the sample.

• Measurement is controlled by a computer, permitting automatic measurement with selected temperature difference a specified furnace temperature.

• Measured raw data is stored on disc.

• System comes with Constantan Reference incl. tables and certificate

Specifications

Thermoelectric power generation is a method of direct electric power generation from heat, based on the thermoelectric effect which was discovered by J. T. Seebeck, a German physicist in 1821. In the face of recent global warming, caused by carbon dioxide and depletion of fossil fuels, thermoelectric conversion devices are attracting attention because of its effective utilization of waste heat energies. LINSEIS has developed the LSR-1 system for a reliable, easy and fast characterization of thermoelectric materials at room temperature or in the temperature range from -196°C up to +200°C.

Applications





Seebeck voltage/temperature gradient (blue) measured while sweeping gradient heater power together with the linear regression (orange).
Seebeck coefficient is determined by the slope of the linear regression.








Seebeck coefficient measurement example of constant.




By this method the Seebeck coefficient is measured relative to Alumel. In order to calculate the absolute Seebeck coefficient Platinum is measured relative to the Alumel wire over temperature.








The table for the absolute Seebeck coefficient deposited in the HCS software database and is used by the software for the automated calculation of absolute Seebeck coefficient and for the Seebeck coefficient relative to platinum (as it is often used as reference in the literature).
