Equipment

BIOLOGIC - 6 X BIOLOGIC VMP3

64 normal channels
28 EIS channels
5 low I channels
3 high I channels
Multichannel potentiostats (with PITT protocol) / galvanostats (with GITT protocol) with low current options, amplifiers and impedance measurement. The system are composed by an integrated sine wave generator and frequency response analyzer built onto the plug-in potentiostat module. These equipments allow working with the following techniques:

CLIMATIC CHAMBER - VOTSCH 7400

The climatic chamber (model VT7004) is appropriate to test cells at a constant temperature when it is critical in the performance and also to analize the effect of the temperature.
