HP 3396 - Problem
I have a question about HP 3396B series III integrator. While obtaining measurement on GC the integrator got out of paper. We put a new paper but on integrator there is still flushing "RUN" light a nd we cannot run another samples. Can you please help us to clear this?

Compression clamp
We have a ceramic type of material with modulus around 50GPa and the thickness is around 50micron. This is bounded to a substrate with modulus around 150GPa and the thickness is around 2mm. We would like to measure the compression modulus of this material (composed of two materials) with Q800 DMA that we have , I was wondering whether the compression clamp can handle this? In terms of some restrictions that DMA has on modulus of materials.
