Differential Scanning Calorimeter - Netzsch

Differential Scanning Calorimeter

The IFM research group has two types of Differential Scanning Calorimeters, heat flux (Netzsch) and power compensating (Perkin Elmer). These units are essential for the study of decomposition, phase change and melting points or metals and polymers.
