What can QCM-D technology be used for?

Surfaces are all around us. To control the macroscale we need to understand and tune the nanoscale. To our aid, we use analytical tools, such as QCM-D

What is QCM-D?

QCM-D (Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring) is an extended version of QCM, and is particularly suitable for the characterization of soft layers.
