The QCM with an added D measures an additional parameter, the dissipation factor. The QCM-D provides more information about the system under study than traditional QCM.
Thanks to the complementary information combinatorial QCM-D and ellipsometry can provide, these two allow one to simultaneously monitor both polymer brush swelling and deswelling behavior, as well as attachment and detachment of protein.
Combining QCM-D and spectroscopic ellipsometry in one measurement. This allows for data to be recorded simultaneously with both techniques on the same surface.
How do nanomaterials interact with the environment? Current research uses model cell membranes to understand nanoparticle-cell membrane interaction.
Electric storage to secure the supply of electricity is becoming more important as our energy sources continue to shift from fossil fuels to renewable energies.
How does QCM-D work? Perhaps you know that a QCM-D sensor is made out of quartz, which is a piezoelectric material. But what does that really mean?
