Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Monitoring (QCM-D) Workshop

Primary tabs

The Nanotechnology Research Center has acquired a variety of new instruments at the interface between nanotechnology and life sciences research as part of the core facilities in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building. One particular technique, Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Monitoring (QCM-D), can be used to measure several dynamic properties of materials and biological molecules. Using QCM-D, changes in sproperties and mass can be simultaneomonitored in real-time in air or in liquid. This technique provides a more fundamental understanding of nanoscale material behavior.

This workshop is designed to acquaint you with the fundamental aspects of this technique as well as some examples of current applications. A demonstration experiment will also be performed.

This event includes lunch. RSVP to David Gottfried.
