Measuring chamber for determining the electrical properties of highly reactive powder samples

Activity Start Date 02.07.2015
Advantages and Innovations: • easy and quick testing of samples of powder due to the ease of use • testing of samples of highly reactive chemically, because the measuring chamber is made of chemically inert materials • eliminate sample contact with atmospheric air through a system of sealing the chamber • carrying out measurements of both, temperature and pressure through the use of simple control systems, heating and clamping force • reviewing the current state of the sample using a side hole placed in the side wall of the chamber • omission of the initial stage of tableting powder samples, as it is pressed directly between the electrodes in the measuring chamber • eliminate the problem of insufficient compaction of the sample through the ability to control contact force of electrodes during the measurement • omission of vacuum deposition of metal phase in tableting sample because electrical contact is ensured by a strong clamping electrodes • reduction in time measurement due to the elimination tableting stages and vacuum deposition, and by simplifying the method of heating and pressure control during the measurement • Lower total cost of the measurement by eliminating the vacuum deposition step, which involves the absence of the need to purchase a vacuum evaporator • examination of milligram amounts of chemicals through the miniaturization of the measuring system • ease of use, reliability and failure-free • low cost of production because of the simplicity of construction and cheap construction’s materials

Description of the offer: The invention relates to the measurement chamber which is adapted for determining the electrical properties of highly reactive powder samples using impedance spectroscopy method. This method is used in the study of colloidal systems, polymer systems and as well in pharmaceutical and biological systems. By using the measuring chamber properties of reactive chemical compounds can be studied, that are necessary to develop new technologies such as superconductors, chemical energy storage, solid hydrogen storage, semiconductors, photovoltaic cells and supercapacitors. The invention is characterized by low cost of production, failure-free and easy to use, and in addition, it has technical features which are not found in other devices of this type. The innovation allows for conducting impedance measurements for powder samples, chemically reactive and sensitive to contact with air and atmospheric moisture. The invention allows for simultaneous control of sample temperature and the pressure exerted on the sample, and the ability to visually monitor the current state of the sample. This chamber is the first solution for electrochemical research for reactive powder samples without exposing them to weather conditions. An additional advantage of the present invention is ease of use of the product which notably simplify and shorten the measurement procedure while reducing the costs of research. Cost of production of the chamber of the present invention is low, and the production process is straightforward. The measurement chamber was tested in the laboratory and developed by more than 12 months prior to patent application. University is looking for R&D and industrial partners willing to start collaboration under commercial, license or manufacturing agreement.
