How Thermal Analysis can unlock Nature’s Secrets

Amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) is the amorphous and least stable polymorph of calcium carbonate. ACC is extremely unstable under normal conditions and is found for example in sea urchins and corals. The influence of ACC on the outstanding macromechanical properties of Echinoderm calcite is unknown. In this paper Thermal Analysis methods were used to investigate the thermal stability of sea urchin spines.

How DSC Measurements help with Phase Diagrams – A Possibility for Determining the Composition of a NiAl Alloy

FreeImages.com/mireque kodesh

E. Post, J. Blumm

A phase diagram portrays the equilibrium conditions between the thermodynamically separated phases or it shows which phases are present in the material system at different temperatures, pressures and compositions. Thermoanalytical methods play an important role in establishing binary and ternary phase diagrams. They are based on the principle that, when a phase transition occurs, the physical, chemical and/or structural properties change.

Thermal Interface Materials (TIM): Thermal Conductivity Testing

TIM Application

Characterization of the thermal performance of thermal interface materials (TIM) used in electronics packaging can be critical to maintaining reliable performance, especially with the rapidly increasing heat dissipation requirements of each new generation of electronic components.
To make routine measurements on TIM’s faster – without the impact of contact resistance, you can rely on Light- or Laser-Flash Methods (ASTM E1461)
