How to measure thin film degradation with QCM-D

Thin film degradation and material desorbtion is sometimes wanted and sometimes not. In both cases, it can be important to characterize so that it can be optimized and controlled.

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
