Differential Scanning Calorimeter
What does the dsc do?
Characterizes thermal properties in polymeric material
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
What does the FTId do?
Uses infrared wavelengths to identify chemical bonds in order to characterize/identify polymeric materials
Scanning Electron Microscope
WHat does the sem do?
Uses microns (rather than visible light) to image objects at very high magnification with depth of field. Elemental analysis is also possible with energy dispersive spectroscopy.
What does the xrd do?
Identifies phases of crystalline materials by using x-rays to probe atomic arrangements.
What does the xrf do?
Identifies composition of metallic materials by utilizing x-rays
