Discover Thermo-Optical Analysis (TOA) Using Hot-Stage Microscopy

Live Webinar: Thermo-Optical Analysis Using Hot-Stage Microscopy


Discover This Visual Technique for Studying Phase Transitions

Thermo-optical analysis (TOA) permits visual observation of the physical changes that occur in a sample as a function of temperature or time. TOA using a hot-stage microscopy system is a widely-used technique for studying these transitions. When combined with Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), heat flow is simultaneously recorded for a more comprehensive analysis.

In this webinar, we present the principles of TOA, different hot-stage microscopy systems, and typical applications for a range of industries.

Typical Measurements Using TOA and Hot-Stage Microscopy

Important characteristics that can be measured using this method are melting and crystallization behavior, thermal and oxidative stability, specific heat capacity, and purity. These can be investigated with just a few milligrams of sample.
