The Autolab PGSTAT provides the scientist with all the electrochemical methods of interest for surface science. Potentiostatic and galvanostatic control allow the researchers to accurately control the reactions taking place at the electrochemical interface as well as the rate of these reaction and the quantity of material involved.
Using these methods, the composition, roughness, structure and growth mode of deposited materials can be controlled.
The Autolab EQCM module (Electrochemical Quartz Crystal Microbalance) further extends the versatility of the Autolab PGSTAT. It provides the means to measure mass changes in the ng/cm2 range.
This allows the users to detect the formation of the very first atomic layers on the surface of a piezo-electric quartz sensor. With this technology, the formation of metallic deposits during electrolytic or electroless processes can be monitored in situ.
The entry level member of the modular Autolab instruments family, the PGSTAT128N is a low current, low noise and fast potentiostat/galvanostat capable of measuring maximum 800 mA, with a compliance voltage of 12 V. The PGSTAT128N is a high performance low cost option for electrochemical measurements in small cells.
Designed for a wide range of electrochemical applications, from corrosion measurements to the characterization of energy storage devices, this budget instrument is the ideal choice for electrochemical applications where performance is important. You can customize and enhance the capabilities of the PGSTAT128N by adding one or more of the many available optional modules or accessories.
This high end, high current potentiostat/galvanostat, with a compliance voltage of 30 V and a bandwidth of 1 MHz, combined with our FRA32M module, is specially designed for electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
The PGSTAT302N is the succesor of the popular PGSTAT30. The maximum current is 2 A, the current range can be extended to 20 A with the BOOSTER20A, the current resolution is 30 fA at a current range of 10 nA.
The PGSTAT100N is a high voltage potentiostat/galvanostat with a compliance voltage of 100 V and a maximum current of 250 mA (and a maximum of 10 A / 20 V when combined with BOOSTER10A). This instrument is designed to address the needs of scientists doing electrochemical measurements in extreme conditions such as organic electrolytes, soil, concrete etc.
