Chronoamperometry Setup Parameters

Setup parameters common to all Physical Electrochemistry setups are given here. Parameters particular to Chronoamperometry are given below.

Sample Period

The spacing between data points. The units used for the Sample Period are seconds. The longest Sample Period allowed is 600 seconds. The Sample Period also helps determine the Number of Points in the data curve as follows.

Number of Points = Total Time / Sample Period

The Number of Points must be less than that specified in GLOBALS.EXP. If you have more points, the experiment aborts just before the data-acquisition phase of the sequence. The resolution in the Total Time is controlled by the Sample Period. Times that are not integer multiples of the Sample Period are rounded down. For example, if the Sample Period is set for 8 seconds, and a Total Time of 900 seconds is requested, the actual Initial Time will be 896 seconds, which is 112 Sample Periods.
