Shivaji University, Kolhapur, India

Dr T. D. Dongale from Shivaji University tell us about his team's experience with the ArC One.


"We purchased the ArC ONE in 2018 with the help of a small grant received to me by my School. Initially, I was planning to purchase Kethley's source measurement unit but one of my colleagues suggested buying ArC ONE. Initially, I was sceptical to buy the ArC ONE but then I saw some of the papers Prof. Prodromakis had produced and then I finally decided to buy the instrument. 

The learning curve of the instrument is very simple, therefore, all of my students can easily handle the instrument. We are basically working with oxide nanomaterials and some biomaterials. We also check and compare a few devices with the semiconductor parameter analyzer and the results are very satisfactory. Further, the updated control and firmware also gives us additional advantages for the electrical measurements. 

With the help of ArC One, we have published many papers, and therefore, my master students get good placements in industry and academia."
