DSC-Microscopy System Datasheet
DSC curves often exhibit effects that cannot immediately be understood. In such cases, it would be very helpful to actually see what is going on in the sample. This would enable us to identify solid-solid transitions, differentiate between overlapping effects such as melting and decomposition, observe the shrinkage of fibers or films, or simply identify the cause of an artifact in a DSC curve.
Features and benefits
- Imaging possibilities – microscopy yields information on processes that generate little or no enthalpy and cannot be detected by DSC
- MultiSTAR® DSC sensor capability – very weak effects can be measured with excellent sensitivity and temperature resolution
- Simultaneous image analysis and DSC measurements – provide a complete thermal picture of the sample
- Possibility to upgrade from a conventional DSC to a DSC-Microscopy System within minutes – a DSC 1 or DSC82xe can be easily upgraded to include reflected-light microscopy measurement capability
