DSC – (Differential scanning calorimetry)

Facility/equipment: Equipment

    Description

    Provides information about melting / freezing point, glass transition temperatures, crystallisation temperature, curing point of glues / polymers for a variety of materials such as liquids, solids, polymers, biomaterials and liquid crystals. The information is obtained through heating a sample through a temperature profile and measuring the energy required to do this. This highlights phase transitions, such as melting.
