Studying phase Transitions using AC Calorimetry
AC calorimetry method for the study of heat capacity measurements provides an efficient means to study phase transitions in small samples. It combines ultimate sensitivity, high speed measurement and excellent thermal contact to the sample. The method is especially suited to small samples and allows the finer details of changes in thermal capacity to be studied. It is
particularly useful for hysteretic phase transitions. This method is both fast and capable of resolving details that would be very difficult if not impossible to see using other methods such as relaxation calorimetry.Read more...
