QUARTZ CRYSTAL MICROBALANCE with IMPEDANCE (QCM-I) detectionMicron-thick films of Coconut Oil can be formed by spin-coating and the thickness of the solid films estimated using QCM-I.
Quartz Crystal Microbalance
IntroductionAn experiment using a quartz-crystal microbalance (QCM) with impedance (QCM-I) is a unique technique popular in characterizing biological films that are structurally complex.
Combining QCM-I and OWLS Measurements to Understand Polymer Multilayer Deposition Processes using OPTICAL WAVEGUIDE LIGHTMODE SPECTROSCOPY (OWLS) and QUARTZ CRYSTAL MICROBALANCE with IMPEDANCE (QCM-I).
QCM-I is a powerful technique for measuring the adsorption or binding of polymers, proteins, nano-particles and other molecules to a surface.
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…
