The Linseis LFA 1000 Laser Flash is the most modular and precise Instrument for the determination of Thermal Diffusivity, Conductivity and Specific Heat Values. Its sample robot for up to 6 Samples at the same time allows unbeaten turnaround times. The three user exchangeable furnaces allow measurements from -125 up to 2800°C.
A number of different sample holders for applications such as solids, liquids, melts and slags are available. The compact design allows the separation of hardware and electronics as well as the installation under a hood for nuclear applications.

Application Example: Copper / Aluminum
The pure metals Copper and Aluminum are used in this example to demonstrate the performance of the Linseis Laser Flash device. The measurement results of the two materials are compared with literature values. The measured results vary within 2% of the given literature values; this demonstrates the excellent performance of the instrument.
Standard Laser Flash reference material Pyroceram 9606. Military – transparent to radar Tops for hot plates and stirrers. Unlike metal tops, glass ceramic is easy to clean, highly resistant to scratches, corrosion and chemical attack.
Isotropic Graphite (AIST)
This graph shows the Thermal Diffusivity values measured on a Linseis LFA 1000 compared to the values measured at AIST* Japan. The literature values of the used Isotropic Graphite from AIST* the measured results on the LFA 1000 vary by less than 2%. *(National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Japan)
The LINSEIS high temperature DSC PT1600(HDSC/DTA) is designed to deliver highest calorimetric sensitivity, short time constants and a condensation free sample chamber. These features guarantee superior resolution and baseline stability over the entire instrument lifetime. This provides an indispensable tool for material development, R&D and quality control.
The modular concept of the HDSC and DTA systems allows the use of different furnaces with a temperature range from -150°C up to 1750°C. The vacuum tight design enables quantitative enthalpy and Cp (Specific Heat) determination under the cleanest atmospheres and under vacuum of 10E-5mbar. The systems can be upgraded with anoptional sample robot and coupled to a MS or FTIR.
User friendly exchangeable measureing systems such as a DTA Sensor and two different DSC Sensors are available. Each DSC Sensor is available as type E, K, S, B for the DSC PT1600.
This allows the perfect chioce for any application, temperature or atmosphere.
