I was trying to find other experiments that required getting an IV curve but all of them seem to be applying voltage and measuring the current.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I like to use a variable current source, bipolar in fact, for doing I vs V sweeps in just that way. \$\endgroup\$ – jonk Sep 18 '18 at 20:03

Yes, this would work.

And if you want to measure a curve where you have essentially the same output voltage for different currents, this is pretty much the only way.
