This Nanocalorimeter Measurement System is used for nanocalorimetry measurements at fast heating rates (100 °C/s to 100,000 °C/s) and measurements of samples with very small mass (typically 100 nanograms or less). The chamber can be used for measurements in many different environments - dry air, humidified air, ultra high purity nitrogen, ultra high purity argon, forming gas (5% hydrogen), carbon dioxide, and high vacuum. The chamber has a liquid nitrogen cryostat for measurements as low as -196 °C and as high as 1200 °C.
The system has a 24-bit, 200,000 Sample/second data acquisition system, and is operated using LabView control software. This is a versatile instrument that can measure the thermal properties (heat capacity, transition temperatures, enthalpy) of many different types and morphologies of materials.
