DSC-Microscopy and Other Combination Techniques Contribute Additional Information on DSC Effects


This Webinar covers three optical methods that are used in combination with DSC:

  • DSC-Microscopy
  • DSC-Chemiluminescence
  • DSC-Photocalorimetry

These exciting techniques will be explained in detail. Numerous application examples will be given to illustrate the benefits of the three optical techniques. METTLER TOLEDO offers for each technique a specific option that can be easily attached to the standard DSC.

This webinar explains how these combination techniques work, including DSC-microscopy, and illustrate each of them with a number of exciting applications.

The instrument systems can be quickly configured by attaching suitable optical accessories to the METTLER TOLEDO DSC.


The DSC-microscopy system
DSC-microscopy consists of a DSC with a microscope positioned directly above the sample crucible. A CCD camera mounted on the microscope allows us to capture images of the sample while it is heated or cooled in the DSC. The images help us understand what is happening to the sample and enable us to correctly identify and interpret effects observed on the DSC curve.


The DSC-chemiluminescence system
DSC-Chemiluminescence is the combination of a DSC with an optical accessory for recording chemiluminescence. The highly sensitive CCD camera records the chemiluminescence emitted by a sample as it is measured in the DSC. Chemiluminescence is mainly used to investigate the oxidation behavior of polymers and other materials.


The DSC-photocalorimetry system
DSC-photocalorimetry allows us to expose a sample to light of a particular wavelength range and intensity for a defined time and record the heat flow from the sample. This technique is mainly used to study light-induced curing reactions.
