Cross Section of Electrolytic Cell

Longitudinal section through conductometric cell consisting of two cell halves between which the ion track membrane is inserted and compressed by a screw. Four filling/flushing tubes and two electrodes are shown. The cell is heated from the bottom and encased in an electrical shield. The whole assembly is enclosed by a thermal insulation (not shown).


This work profited highly from a collaboration between GSI Darmstadt and JINR Dubna (Russia), initiated by Christoph Schmelzer and Georgij Nikolaevich Flerov.
