Four points probe

The four point probe setup is an easy-to-use system to evaluate the surface resistivity of thin films or the volume resistivity of silicon substrates or other thin conducting materials. The measurement technique relies on two pairs of electrodes, one injecting the current and the other measuring the voltage. This method reduces the error due to the contact resistance between the electrodes and the material, an error typical of the traditional two terminal setups. In addition, GCM Lab setup can make measurements at various temperatures.
