Actual sample temperature could be different from displayed temperature (or setting temperature if the temperature has been regulated), especially at very high or very low temperature. We recently re-calibrated the sample temperature for all spectrometers, and wrote a macro command set_temp to let users read the actual temperature of samples and set the desired sample temperature accurately.
- To read the actual sample temperature of the current setting, type set_temp.
- To set the sample temperature to 40 °C (actual), type set_temp(40). This sets the parameter temp to a value calculated based on the temperature calibration. You will still need to click Regulate Temp on Spin/Temp page (or type su) to initiate the temperature change.
A short manual for set_temp can be displayed on Text Output page by typing man(‘set_temp’).
