DC I-V Sweeps on the MFIA

on 10.01.2020 at 09:07 by Tim Ashworth on Blog of Tim Ashworth
Characterizing the impedance of components and materials with the MFIA is done by necessity with an AC signal. However, the MFIA and MFLI can also take DC measurements. This blog post shows how easy it is to take DC measurements, […]

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy of Tap Water with the MFIA

on 06.01.2020 at 18:09 by Meng on Blog of Meng Li
Introduction Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a popular non-destructive technique to characterize the physicochemical properties of materials, particularly at the solid-liquid (or electrode-electrolyte) interface. Despite the complexity of the measured data, EIS can be used to study many electrochemical devices […]

A deep dive into data acquisition with the DAQ tool

on 25.11.2019 at 14:21 by moritz on Blog of Moritz Kirste
Introduction Looking at the heart of experimental science you will find data acquisition. Why? Because even the most perfectly conceived experiment is worth nothing if nobody acquires, analyzes and stores data for further analysis and reproduction of results. Despite its […]

How to Generate QAM Signaling with the HDAWG Arbitrary Waveform Generator

on 25.11.2019 at 12:24 by Mehdi on Blog of Mehdi Alem
Introduction  Digital modulation is extensively used in telecommunications, radar systems and quantum technologies. Corresponding to every analog modulation technique, i.e. amplitude modulation (AM), phase modulation (PM) and frequency modulation (FM), there is a digital version of signal modulation: amplitude-shift keying […]

Bioimpedance of a Muscle Contraction with the MFIA

on 22.11.2019 at 09:20 by Tim Ashworth on Blog of Tim Ashworth
Impedance measurements of biological tissue are commonly used in bio-engineering and life sciences to assess the condition and composition of tissue in a non-invasive, reproducible way.  In addition, bio-impedance measurements, also known as bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) or electrical impedance […]
