Malin graduated in physics in 2006, where her research focused on the QCM-D technology. Since then she has been scrutinizing the how’s and why’s of the world in general, and the world of QCM-D in particular.
Thin film degradation is sometimes wanted and sometimes not. In both cases, it can be important to characterize so that it can be optimized and controlled.
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
The QCM-D, which is an extended version of the QCM, is particularly suitable for the characterization of soft layers.
A Quartz Crystal Microbalance or QCM, is essentially a balance for very small masses. But why would anyone want to weigh nanogram variations of a material?
