This blog shows that nanoparticle deposition can improve thin film solar cell efficiency.
The ability to take up and release water is central for many materials, such as hydrogels, whose function depend on the ability to hydrate and dehydrate. Hydration and swelling are also central when dealing with hygroscopic materials. QCM-D can be used to characterize such swelling phenomenon.
Wood, ice and the disks in a human spine are all viscoelastic materials. Viscoelasticity is a quality involving both viscous and elastic properties at the same time. QCM-D is a surface sensitive technology that can characterize the viscoelastic properties of thin films.
Describes the instrument features needed for successful high-pressure interfacial tension measurements.
The paradigm shift from the study of static surface systems to the exploration of dynamic ones resulted in the field of gas-surface dynamics. The area includes concepts such as scattering, potential energy surfaces(PESs), energy exchange, surface corrugation, and charge transfer.
Adsorption and desorption phenomena are important to study in e.g. surface science and bio-related applications, where molecules are interacting with surfaces.
