Linear Sweep Voltammetry (LSV)
Last Updated: 3/6/19 by Support
Linear Sweep Voltammetry (LSV) is a basic potentiostatic method. It is equivalent to a one-segment cyclic voltammetry experiment./alert]
Linear sweep voltammetry involves sweeping the potential of the working electrode linearly with time at rates typically between 10 mV/s and 1000 V/s. Current is plotted as a function to potential and this plot is called a voltammogram.
3Experimental Setup in AfterMath
To perform a linear sweep voltammetry experiment in AfterMath, choose Linear Sweep Voltammetry (LSV) from the Experiments menu (see Figure 1).
Figure 1. Linear Sweep Voltammetry (LSV) Experiment Menu Selection in AfterMath
Doing so creates an entry within the archive, called LSV Parameters. In the right pane of the AfterMath application, several tabs will be shown (see Figure 2).
