Differential Scanning Calorimetry
Core Tasks (1)>>
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a calorimetric analysis technique for very accurate measurements of heat flows from and to materials within a wide range of temperatures (e.g., -80 °C to +500 °C). This makes it possible to determine the phase behaviour and the (in)stability of materials as a function of temperature (melting point or range, crystallization point, vitreous transition, specific heat, melting and crystallization heat, etc.).
DSC is complementary to other techniques for rheological or mechanical characterization available at BRRC.
