Cooling of the sample after a temperature-jump results in a methodic error of the temperature-jump method in the ms- and sec-time range, especially when studying multiple relaxation phenomena and using micro or semi-micro sample cells. The cooling process has been studied both theoretically and experimentally using HV-conductivity heating and detection of optical absorption and fluorescence. An electronic signal correction circuit has been developed.
