Photoelectrochemistry

Universal photo- & spectro-electrochemical workstations, options and accessories.

CIMPS

The automatic comparison between set value and sensed intensity eliminates the influence of non-linearity, ageing and temperature drift. Furthermore, it allows the direct calibration of the light source in units of intensity (W/m²).

The CIMPS package consists of several components, working together in a plug & play application, including software and an overall calibration of the system. An ZENNIUM X/pro or ZENNIUM electrochemical workstation acts as a frequency response analyser and as a control unit (potentiostat / galvanostat) for the cell under test. All ZENNIUM series workstations are renowned for their high precision, ease of use and comprehensive software. A slave potentiostat, driven by the ZENNIUM system, controls the amplitude and the modulation of the light source over a wide range of frequencies.

An optical bench carries the housing of the light source with the integrated photo-amplifier and the slider with the photo-electrochemical cell PECC-1 or PECC-2. The PECCs are a versatile option completing your CIMPS setup for performing photoelectrochemistry in solution. A photodiode sensor, included in the CIMPS setup, is mounted near the site of the light inlet of your obejct (solar cell, PECC, etc.), adjustable in height and angle. Depending on the application, you can chose from different types of light sources, which are optional components making your CIMPS system an highly flexible tool for your photoelectrochemical research.

CIMPS-QE/IPCE System

ZAHNER’s CIMPS-QE/IPCE system is a fully integrated and compact workstation for high-accuracy QE/IPCE measurements at the push of a button. Setting up the system is quick and easy, does not require either special knowledge or additional tools.

CIMPS Options

  • Spectral Resolved Transmittance / Absorbance Measurement System

  • Photo-Electrochemical Light Emission Measurement System

  • Photo-Electrochemical photo current spectra system

  • Fast Light Intensity Transients System

  • Synchronous Multi Spectral DTR (OIS) with Parallel Impedance Measurement System

PEC-Cells

The PECC-1/PECC-2 are specially tailored for testing electrode materials with photoelectrochemical techniques. Several mounting options for samples offer flexibility for various tasks.

Light Sources

Over 50 monochromatic light sources from UV to IR are available. The portfolio includes high power white and coloured LEDs, tungsten lamps and tuneable light sources.

Light Exclusion Box

The CIMPS Light Exclusion Box (LEB) is an indispensable supplement for all CIMPS applications using CIMPS LED light sources. Next to its function to protect the sample setup from light, at the same time, it works as a Faraday’s cage.

The CIMPS optical bench fits directly into a fixture. The box is compatible with all single wavelength light sources as well as with the tunable light source TLS03. The cover with top and attached front and sides can be tilted up granting free access to the complete optical bench. Three blanketed openings on three sides are leading all cables into the box but block the light.

External Potentiostats

Extend your electrochemical workstation, for example ZENNIUM X or ZENNIUM pro, with an external potentiostat to boost output current, enlarge compliance voltage or realize multi-cell arrangements.

PP201

The PP-Series potentiostats are controlled by an EPC42, a plug-in module for the ZENNIUM-series Electrochemical Workstations. Due to the built-in microprocessor, each EPC42 can address up to four PPSeries potentiostats. Up to four EPC42 cards can be installed in an ZENNIUM-series workstation. In total, up to 16 PPs can be controlled by one ZENNIUM. Each potentiostat will hold the control parameters from one access to the next one, so that no potential or current disturbances can occur while scanning the potentiostats. If series measurements are performed with more than one PP-Series potentiostat, spectra are taken from all modules in a definable order.

The PP-Series is embedded completely in the ZENNIUM environment. Thus, all acquisition and analysis techniques that run on the ZENNIUM workstation can be applied with the power potentiostats as well. The installation of one or more PP-Series potentiostat will upgrade your ZENNIUM to an even more versatile, high-current electrochemical workstation.

The PP-Series potentiostats can also be controlled by a Windows®-PC. In this case they provide methods, summarized in the table below. They also work as a LabView® Virtual Instrument under the LabView® software. To implement the PP-Series potentiostats into existing test environment, a supporting DLL is available on demand.

You can control the PP-Series potentiostats in a mixed mode with an ZENNIUM and a PC in parallel. Both devices can be connected and disconnected during operation.

Each potentiostat will hold the control parameters from one access to the next one, so that no potential or current disturbances can occur while scanning the potentiostats. If series measurements are performed with more than one PP-Series potentiostat, spectra are taken from all modules in a definable order.

The PP-Series is embedded completely in the ZENNIUM environment. Thus, all acquisition and analysis techniques that run on the ZENNIUM workstation can be applied with the power potentiostats as well.

XPot

The XPOT potentiostat is controlled by an EPC42, a plug-in module for the ZENNIUM-type Electrochemical Workstations. Due to the built-in microprocessor each EPC42 can address up to four XPOT potentiostats. Up to four EPC42 cards can be installed in an ZENNIUM-series workstation. In total, up to 16 XPOTs can be controlled by one ZENNIUM workstation. Using the XPOT allows parallel investigation of different objects. In such multi-cell arrangements, potentiostats which are not addressed, will hold their DC conditions. Each potentiostat will hold the control parameters from one access to the next one, so that no potential or current disturbances can occur while scanning the potentiostats. If series measurements are performed with more than one XPOT potentiostat, spectra are taken from all modules in a definable order.

The XPOT is embedded completely in the ZENNIUM environment. Thus, all acquisition and analysis techniques that run on the ZENNIUM-type workstation can be applied with the external potentiostat as well. The installation of one or more XPOT potentiostat will upgrade your ZENNIUM workstation to an even more versatile multi-potentiostat electrochemical workstation.

Besides, the XPOT potentiostats can be controlled by a Windows®-PC. In this case they provide the methods Test Sampling as well as U- and I-curves vs. time. They also work as a LabView® Virtual Instrument under the LabView® software.

Furthermore, you can control the XPOT potentiostats in a mixed mode with an ZENNIUM-series electrochemical workstation and a PC in parallel. Both devices can be connected and disconnected in operation.

Noise Probe

Noise based corrosion research using conventional electrochemical methods focus on the fact that the initial redox processes are related to the charge transfer of the metal dissolution deposition processes. Distinct areas of the object surface can be viewed as local galvanic elements that contribute to the total measured potential. Since many of these local elements are superimposed, the fluctuation of the potential (and the current, if the electrode is polarized) is low. Traditional electrochemical methods are based on this „steady state" behavior. However, inhomogeneous corrosion attack, which is particularly important in the nucleation phase, does not conform to these conditions. Traditional methods such as impedance or Tafel techniques will fail for such inhomogeneous corroding objects, because the measurement signals become more and more noisy. In this case noise measurements quantify these discrete events that are disturbing the continuous methods.

For analysis, it is of great value to measure both current and potential noise. The problem is that measurement of current noise essentially requires a short circuit condition, whereas potential noise must be measured with a high impedance load. The standard method for solving this problem is to measure two identical systems, one under open circuit, the other under short circuit condition. A common experimental arrangement uses three identical electrodes, where one pair acts as a current noise source under short-circuit conditions, the second as a potential noise source under open circuit condition. One electrode acts as a common electrode.

This arrangement is often used in monitoring applications, and can be set up with a ZENNIUM electrochemical workstation equipped with EPC42 + NProbe. However, this method has a significant disadvantage in that the measured current and potential noise do not come from the same electrochemical system. Even though it is assumed that the corrosion behavior of both systems is identical, the current and the potential are not correlated. This means that only the scalar rms values can be related, and vector operations like power calculation are meaningless.

There is a solution for the problem, based on the fact that corrosion-related noise is observed mainly in the low frequency range. To a first approximation, the noise source may be described as a low frequency noise oscillator in series with a source resistance. Therefore it is possible to sample both current and potential signals by rapid switching between the two modes (open circuit and short circuit). If the switching/sampling frequency is high relative to the highest noise frequency of interest, this technique works without loss of information.

CorrElNoise, developed by the specialists at Zahner, is based on these principles. CorrElNoise stands for the measurement of CORRelated ELectrochemical current and potential NOISE coming from the same source. The method is available both as a plug-in for the IM6 and as a stand-alonesystem. It enables the user to record current, potential and power noise in the frequency range from DC up to about 5 Hz. Furthermore CorrElNoise benefits from the chopper principle. This means that electronic offset and drift problems, as well as line frequency interference, are automatically suppressed.

As noise measurements normally have a long acquisition time there is a lot of data to be handled. The NOISE software allows to save measurement data in two ways: Normally the software reduces the flood of data by a factor of 260. Then you have access to the most often used analysis mode, the frequency spectrum of the noise signal. In addition the time-domain signal can be saved so that any other analysis method can be applied after the acquisition. Time-domain data are compressed with a factor of 8.

Electronic Loads

Electronic loads are indispensable tools in several fields of electrochemistry, for example in the research of batteries and fuel cells. Using an additional external power supply you easily can extend an EL to a two-quadrant potentiostat you need e.g. in the field of electrolysis.

EL300

The EL-Series potentiostats are controlled by an EPC42, a plug-in module for the Electrochemical Workstations IM6 and Zennium. Each EPC42 can address up to four EL-Series potentiostats. Up to four EPC42 cards can control up to 16 ELs by one IM6/Zennium. Each potentiostat will hold the control parameters from one access to the next one, so that no potential or current disturbances can occur while scanning the potentiostats. If series measurements are performed with more than one EL-Series potentiostat, spectra are taken from all modules in a definable order. The EL-Series is completely integrated into the IM6/Zennium environment. Thus, all acquisition and analysis techniques that run on the IM6/Zennium can be applied with the EL-Series potentiostats as well. The installation of one or more EL-Series potentiostat will upgrade your IM6/Zennium to an even more versatile, high-current electrochemical workstation.

EL1000

Due to the limited potential span resulting from the combination of chemical elements or compounds, a huge number of cells have to be stacked to achieve a technical practicable voltage, say for instance 100 V. The EL 1000 was designed to investigate complete stacks, either as stand-alone device under PC control or in combination with a ZENNIUM X, ZENNIUM pro or ZENNIUM Electrochemical Workstation for instance for impedance measurements. Adding an additional external electronic load, the power can be raised up – adding the PAD4 to the controlling workstation, individual segments of the stack can be investigated separately.

The EL-Series potentiostats are controlled by an EPC42, a plug-in module for the electrochemical workstations ZENNIUM X, ZENNIUM pro or ZENNIUM. Each EPC42 can address up to four EL-Series potentiostats. Up to four EPC42 cards can control up to 16 ELs by one ZENNIUM X, ZENNIUM pro or ZENNIUM electrochemical workstation. Each potentiostat will hold the control parameters from one access to the next one, so that no potential or current disturbances can occur while scanning the potentiostats. If series measurements are performed with more than one EL-Series potentiostat, spectra are taken from all modules in a definable order. The EL-Series is completely integrated into the ZENNIUM-series environment. Thus, all acquisition and analysis techniques that run on the ZENNIUM electrochemical workstations can be applied with the EL-Series potentiostats as well. The installation of one or more EL-Series potentiostat will upgrade your ZENNIUM workstations to even more versatile, high-current electrochemical instruments.

The EL1000 potentiostats can alternatively be controlled by a Windows®-PC. In this case they provide methods, summarized in the table below. They also work as a LabView® virtual instrument under the LabView® software. To implement the EL1000 potentiostats into existing test environment, a supporting DLL is available on demand.

You can control the EL1000 potentiostats in a mixed mode with a ZENNIUM-series electrochemical workstation and a PC in parallel. One of both devices can be connected and disconnected during operation.

Probes

Prepare any of the ZENNIUM workstations for special fields of application like high impedances, low impedances, very low capacitance or boost the compliance voltage.

HiZ Probe

U- and I-probe come in two small boxes which can easily be placed near by the sample. By this, electrical noise artifacts are minimized. Typical applications are investigations on passive layers, oxydes, nitrides, dielectric films, ceramic substrates, low conductive electrolytes, lacquers, coatings, microelectrodes etc.

The HiZ Probe set is connected to the Probe I and the Probe E terminals of the ZENNIUM Electrochemical Workstations. No additional hardware is needed.

LoZ Cable Set

The LoZ cable set is specially designed for low impedance measurements. The symmetric geometry of the cables reduce the influence of mutual induction as much as possible.

The LoZ cable set is connected to the Probe E/I connectors of the main potentiostat with a standard length of 2 m. User defined lengths are available on request.

fF Probe

The femto-Farad Probe works as a front-end to the IM6/Zennium-potentiostat. Apart from its limited current capability, all basic functionalities of the Thales software are supported. In particular impedance spectroscopy can be applied. Due to the fact, that the primary measurement magnitude is the complex impedance, besides the sample capacity, resistive and DC contributions can be determined as well.

CVB120

The Compliance Voltage Booster 120 provides a controlled voltage of up to ±100 V and a compliance voltage of up to ±120 V. The CVB120 is a booster which is to be connected to the Probe E/I connectors of a ZENNIUM Electrochemical Workstation.

If high potentials are to be applied and if high potentials are to be controlled and measured, higher compliance voltages are needed. The CVB120 is a booster which is to be connected to the buffer connectors of a ZENNIUM Electrochemical Workstation.

FRA Probe

The FRA module interfaces third-party potentiostats and electronic loads to the IM6/Zennium system. The external device must provide an analog control input and analog signal outputs for the measured current and voltage.

FRA is fully supported by the Thales software. Only the gain factors have to be set for each device individually.

Distinct areas of the object surface can be viewed as local galvanic elements that contribute to the total measured potential.

Addon Cards

Fit your ZENNIUM electrochemical workstation to your application. Control external potentiostats, capture additional physical properties or enhance your system to a true parallel impedance analyzer by the help of suitable ZAHNER Add-On Cards.

The ZENNIUM X, IM6, ZENNIUM pro and ZENNIUM electrochemical workstations are based on a modular concept which allows a quick and easy expansion with additional hardware and software. Simply plug in an add-on card into an empty expansion slot of the ZENNIUM workstaton. The Thales software will automatically detect the card and enable corresponding functions.

EPC42

The EPC42 is a controller module for external potentiostats. Each EPC42 is able to address up to 4 PP/EL/XPot devices. Up to four EPC42 cards can be installed in a ZENNIUM/ZENNIUM X/ZENNIUM pro system. In total, an advanced ZENNIUM electrochemical workstation has the ability to control up to 16 external PPs/XPots.

Each potentiostat will hold all its values from one control access to the next one so that no potential or current disturbances will occur while scanning a series of potentiostats. If Automatic Series Measurements are performed with more than one PP-series device connected, spectra are taken from all modules in a user-defined order.

PAD4

The ZAHNER PAD4 is a 4-channel add-on card for ZENNIUM Electrochemical Workstations. It introduces four additional parallel sampled signal inputs for cell voltage and impedance in fuel cell stacks and battery packs, with a common current.

The capacity of the Zahner Zennium is one PAD4-cards, supporting up to five channels, while the IM6 can be extended by up to four cards, allowing a maximum count of 17 parallel channels.

PAD4-cards are plug ’n’ play – they are detected automatically on start-up and they are integrated in the Thales impedance series measurement support. Each input can be activated individually. The PAD4 may be combined with the basic ECW or with the ECW controlling a slave potentiostat or an electronic load, finally providing tests on stacks of up to 100V / 600A / 50 KW. High resolution 18-bits-AD-converters and a wide frequency range of 10 µHz - 250KHz make this solution extremely versatile.

Temp/U

ZAHNER TEMP/U enables the measurement of temperature by direct connection of two different thermocouples. Two additional electrochemical potential measurements can be done by connecting auxiliary electrodes to the medium level inputs.

Unless otherwise noticed, the TEMP-U is delivered pre-configured for two NiCrNi-(type K)-thermocouples, temperature range –70C to +250C and two voltage inputs in the range of ±4V. An optional automatic cold junction compensation can be activated by a switch at the top of the front plate. All channels are bandwidth limited by means of anti aliasing filters.

TR8M

Transient recorder TR8M with 8 MSample up to 20 MHz. With the TR8M you can record fast pulses and transients. Together with the Pluse Probe and an external potentiostat or electronic load you can perform high current interrupt (HCI) measurements.

The hardware extension module TR8M for the Electrochemical Workstations IM6 and IM6e is optimized for the investigation of fast electrical events which need to be measured with a high time resolution and fixed phases in two channels. A typical application is the investigation of pulse and transient responses.

As soon as the module is plugged into the IM system it is detected by the Thales software. When staring the program modules PVI, Pulse or TRC located in the Time Domain menu the programming of the transient recorder is available. In PVI and Pulse the ranges and menus are extended accordingly, in TRC parameters are input directly in the program window.

RMux

The RMux add-on card allows to connect up to 16 electrochemical cells to your electrochemical workstation simultaneously.

The counter electrode and the reference electrode outlets of the internal IM6/Zennium potentiostat are switched to the active cell only. The working electrode and the test electrode are connected internally and have a common outlet. The inactive cells are open circuit.

RMux4

The RMux4 addon card allows to connect up to 4 different electrochemical cells to your ZENNIUM X, ZENNIUM pro and ZENNIUM potentiostat, simultaneously.

The counter electrode and the reference electrode outlets of the internal IM6/Zennium potentiostat are switched to the active cell only. The working electrode and the test electrode are connected internally and have a common outlet. The inactive cells are open circuit and the potential can be measured in parallel to the active cell.

MIO

The MIO addon card provides 4 analog outputs with an voltage range of ±10 V, 4 digital inputs and 4 isolated digital outputs.

PMux

The power cell multiplexer PMux can be used with ZENNIUM electrochemical workstations as well as with an external potentiostat from the EL-Series, PP-Series and XPot. It can manage a cell current up to ±5 A.

There are two configurations of the PMux. The PMux-S can measure 16 individual cells compared with the PMux-P which is configured to measure 16 segmented cells for example of a fuel cell.

The PMux-S is configured for sequentially measuring through up to 16 individual cells using either the internal potentiostat of the IM6/Zennium or an external potentiostat of the PP-series or an electronic load of the EL-series.

The PMux-P is configured for sequentially measuring through up to 16 segments of a segmented fuel cell. For that application a PP-series potentiostat or an EL-series electronic load is used for loading all segments except the one which is measured. The measurement is done by the internal IM6/Zennium potentiostat. The software carries out sequential measurements through all segments of the fuel cell. With one PMux-P these are up to 16 segments. Up to 3 PMux-P modules can be stacked for a total of up to 48 segments. Both, the PP and the IM potentiostat have to be connected to the PMux-P.

Each PMux device includes a RMux addon card for controlling the cell multiplexer. This means that every PMux needs an extension slot of the IM6/Zennium.

Extension Kits

Ready to use extension packages for special methods e.q. high current interrupt or AC-DC-AC test on laminates.

COLT

The COLT measurement system has been designed to match the special demands of investigations on coatings and laminates.

Besides traditional electrochemical investigations supported by the Thales software package a variety of special measurements and documentation tasks can be done easily with the COLT option:

  • Layer quality test

  • D-Layer test

  • Delamination test

  • AC-DC-AC tests on coatings & laminates

  • AC-DC-AC tests on packaging materials

  • AC-DC-AC tests on coated surfaces

A cleverly devised combination of measuring cells, electrodes and auxiliary equipment, specially constructed for COLT, reduces the time needed to prepare and connect samples, allowing a high throughput of test samples.

HCI

High Current Interrupt measurements (HCI), optionally available forall ZENNIUM modular electrochemical workstations, boosts the high frequency performance for dynamic system analysis by a factor of three to ten.

It consists of a TR8M transient recorder and a calibrated pulse probe. An external device from the PP-Series or EL-Series is needed in addition.

Even at the end , when mutual induction finally limits the EIS at higher frequencies, ZAHNER can offer a solution:

High Current Interrupt measurements (HCI), optionally available for the IM6 systems, boosts the high frequency performance for dynamic system analysis by a factor of three to ten. HCI complements EIS measurements at very low impedances in the higher frequency range, what is of high interest for accurate determination of ohmic losses and self inductance of power devices. A TR8M transient recorder plug-in and an EL type electronic load, together with a pulse probe is needed to extend the IM6 or ZENNIUM for this application.
