How to analyze combined QCM-D and Ellipsometry data

The functionality and performance of organic layers can be determined by their conformation, porosity and swelling state. One approach to characterize these properties is to use a combination of the complementary techniques QCM-D and ellipsometry, which allows for the quantification of the layer mass and porosity. In this white paper we outline the theory behind such quantification and provide guidance on how to do such an analysis.

In this White paper you will find:
