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.
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?
Proteins are vital for life and perform a wide range of essential biochemical tasks in all living organisms. It is important that the proteins are correctly folded and functional. However, sometimes the control mechanisms fail and accumulated aggregates transform into protein megastructures.
