The measuring cell TSC Surface is based on a gold-plated thermo block with integrated Pt100 temperature sensor. The surface of the thermo block is plane and mirror-like polished. On top of this surface different kinds of plane samples can be placed for electrochemical characterization.
The loaded cell is hermetically sealed from the outside by a PEEK housing allowing the investigation of air- and/or moisture-sensitive samples.
The cell is closed with a PEEK screw cap with exchangeable electrode. By default, the TSC surface is delivered with a mirror-like polished glassy carbon electrode press-fitted in PEEK (electrochemically active surface area: 6 mm). In principle, all materials which can be pressed into PEEK are available, like for instance stainless steel.
