Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Monitoring (QCM-D), a nanomechanical acoustic-based analytical technique, provides in situ, real-time characterization of interaction of various polymeric and bio-materials at variety of surfaces. With QCM-D, simultaneous measurement of resonance frequency change ( F) and energy dissipation change( D) is performed by periodically switching off the driving power of oscillation of the sensor crystal and recording the decay of damped oscillation as the adsorption and/or structural changes takes place at sensor crystal surface.
