A versatile thermoelectric temperature controller with 10 mK reproducibility and 100 mK absolute accuracy


We describe a general-purpose thermoelectric temperature controller with 1 mK stability, 10 mK reproducibility, and 100 mK absolute accuracy near room temperature. The controller design is relatively simple and could be readily modified for use in different experimental circumstances. We also describe a time-domain numerical model that allows one to characterize the stability and transient behavior of the system being controlled, even in the presence of elements with highly nonlinear responses.
