Dr. Jürgen Schawe presents why fast scanning chip calorimetry is the ideal complement to conventional DSC with heating and cooling rates now covering a range of more than 7 decades.

Lauded as the fastest commercially available chip calorimeter, Flash DSC is ideal for studying rapid crystallization and reorganization processes, and is able to operate in temperatures from -95 to 1000 °C. These ultra-high cooling and heating rates have considerably progressed the study of thermally induced chemical processes and physical transitions, allowing the study of the crystallization and reorganization of a range of materials including metals and polymers like never before.

Key Topics Include:

  • Melting of PET at different heating rates: comparing Flash DSC to conventional DSC
  • Crystallization behavior of polypropylene
  • Isothermal crystallization behavior of a bulk metallic glass (BMG)
  • Melting of a BMG at high temperatures
  • Separation of melting and decomposition in prednisolone
  • Glass transition of a silica glass
