Measurement of Polymer Multilayer Deposition using QCM-I

The electrostatically driven adsorption of polymer and nano-particle multilayers is a well-established method for the physical and chemical transformation of surfaces to produce highly tailored and often “smart”, environmentally sensitive interfaces. The deposition process can be sensitively monitored using QCM-I, which provides information on the hydrated mass of the multilayer as well as its physical […]

Handbook of Surface Plasmon Resonance

Handbook of Surface Plasmon Resonance

Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) plays a dominant role in real-time interaction sensing of biomolecular binding events and with the biosensor field expanding more applications are being found. In response to the market, an update to the original title which was published in 2008 is now appropriate. With over fifty percent of the material being updated, […]

QCM-D with extended temperature range from -40°C to +150°C

The standard temperature range of our QCM-D system is from -40 °C up to 80 °C with better than +- 0.02 °C stability. We can control the temperature of the two QCM sensors independently from the other with the help of a computer controlled high precision Peltier driver. The temperature of the sensors are measured with a high stability Pt100 RTD and the cold side […]
