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
QCM-D (Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring) is an extended version of QCM, and is particularly suitable for the characterization of soft layers.
Quartz Crystal Microbalance, or QCM, is essentially a balance for very small masses which enables time-resolved characterization of thin and rigid layers.
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?
