The tutorials in this chapter have been created to allow users to become more familiar with the basic technique of lock-in amplification, the operation of host-based lock-in amplifiers, the LabOne web browser based user interface, as well as some more advanced lock-in measurement techniques. In order to successfully carry out the tutorials, users are required to have certain laboratory equipment and basic equipment handling knowledge. The equipment list is given below.


For all tutorials, you must have LabOne installed as described in the Getting Started. We make use of a systematic nomenclature to describe the different controls and elements of the LabOne graphical user interface. This nomenclature is explained in User Interface Overview.

  • 1 USB or LAN cable
  • 5 BNC cables
  • 1 oscilloscope (optional)
  • 2 BNC T-pieces
  • With MF-IA Option Only
    • 1 Kelvin probe cable set and through-hole resistors 1 Ω and 10 Ω (for the Compensation tutorial)
    • 1 MΩ through-hole resistor and soldering equipment (for the Advanced Impedance Measurement tutorial)
