## Part 5: op-amp circuits

Before building a circuit to condition the signal, you will build a couple of simple op-amp circuits to get afeel for what to do.

## 5.1 inverting circuit

The inverter is one of the simplest op-amp circuits. This circuit simply changes the sign of a signal. Theschematic diagram of an inverter is shown in Figure 6.

• Build the inverter using two 10 k ohm resistors and an LM741 op-amp.
• Input the signal from the function generator to the circuit.
• Branch the input cable with a BNC T-connector. Connect this input to Channel 0 on Module 1 of the SCXI.
• Connect the output signal from the circuit to the Channel 1 on module 1 of the SCXI.
• When you run the VI, you may need to adjust the scales on the X and Y axes.

You should see that the output is an inverted version of the input.

## 5.2 inverting gain circuit

The inverting gain circuit changes the sign of the signal and multiplies the amplitude. Increasing the amplitudeof a signal can be very important in distinguishing subtle signal characteristics. Quantization errors result when a signalcharacteristic is too small to be detected by a measurement system. (You will learn more about quantization errors in lecture, and onpages 249-250 in your text.)

• Replace the feedback resistor (R2 as shown in Figure 5) in your inverter circuit with a 100 k ohm resistor. This will causethe input signal to be inverted and amplified by a factor of ten.
• Run the VI again.

With the amplification, the input offset of 800 mV has increased to an 8 V output.

Note: Using the data acquisition card to view the signal, you may saturate the ADC with the amplified signal. Allyou will be able to see is a flat line near +5 V or–5 V.

## Part 6: bias correction

For the amplified signal to be read correctly, the 800 mV bias must be removed. A two step process will be used toremove the bias:

• A Trim Potentiometer will be used to step down a 12V DC signal to 800 mV.
• A Differential Amplifier circuit will be built to subtract this stepped down voltage from the sine wave.

The result will be an 80 mV sine wave with zero mean.

Use the 10 k ohm trim potentiometer provided to build a voltage divider as shown below.

• Connect one end lead of the potentiometer to the +12 V bus.
• Connect the other end lead to the–12 V bus.
• Connect a voltmeter across the wiper lead and ground to measure the output.
• Adjust the potentiometer resistance until the voltage on the wiper lead is 800 mV.

## 6.2 differential amplifier

You will build a differential amplification circuit to subtract 800 mV from the sensor signal. A differentialamplifier is shown in Figure 8 below.

• Use four 10 k ohm resistors to subtract the voltage divider output from the sensor signal. It is unlikely that the resultingoutput signal will be a zero-mean sine wave as desired.
• Adjust the screw on the potentiometer to "trim" the offset of the sine wave to zero.
• Amplify the difference between the signals by replacing the R2 resistors so that R2>R1. Replace the R2 resistors with 100 k ohm resistors.

how can chip be made from sand
are nano particles real
yeah

Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
Alexandre
nanocopper obvius

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
