|On Demand Webinar|| Calibration in Thermal Analysis |
You expect that your thermal analysis instrument is always accurate, true and precise and delivers reproducible results within a given range.
A calibration determines whether your module is delivering correctly measured values or needs an adjustment. In Thermal Analysis, different parameters must be calibrated (e.g. temperature, heat flow, mass, length, modulus).

|On Demand Webinar|| Temperature Modulated DSC Techniques (TMDSC) |
Temperature-modulated DSC techniques (TMDSC) are widely used in thermal analysis in industrial and university research laboratories to separate overlapping temperature-dependent and time-dependent thermal effects.
Methods used up until now have overlaid the isothermal temperature or heating ramp with a (usually) sinusoidal temperature modulation of just one frequency (single frequency method). In contrast, TOPEM® , the new advanced multi-frequency temperature-modulation technique, uses a large number of different frequencies (multi-frequency approach).
The basic idea of TOPEM® is to overlay the isothermal or ramped temperature with a time series of stochastic (random) temperature pulses of different duration.
