Surface free energy can be considered as the surface tension of a solid. Surface free energy is calculated through the contact angle measurements. By knowing the surface free energy of the solid, one can predict the behavior of any liquid on the surface.
Quantifying QCM mass, there are two different approaches to choose from, the Sauerbrey equation or viscoelastic modeling. But what if the wrong method is applied, what happens then? How critical are the consequences? Here we describe what happens if the wrong quantification approach is used.
One of the key factors to achieve reliable and reproducible QCM measurements is temperature stability. Here we list the top four factors that will help you eliminate temperature induced artifacts in your QCM data.
