Setting Temperature vs Actual Temperature

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’).
