Quartz crystal microbalance/heat conduction calorimetry (QCM/HCC), a new technology capable of isoth
A new technology called the quartz crystal microbalance/heat conduction calorimeter (QCM/HCC) capable of simultaneous, high sensitivity mass change and heat flow measurements under isothermal conditions, was developed. The QCM/HCC consists of two highly sensitive sensors. A quartz crystal microbalance measures mass changes on its surface (to Â±0.25ng/cm2), while a thermopile positioned between the WCM and a heat sink measures heat flows (to Â±50nW) to and from the surface of the QCM. In the
