How to characterize viscoelastic properties with QCM-D

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.
