Product News: NETZSCH Announces Tau-R Mode to Correct Distortion for Differential Scanning Calorimetry

04 Nov 2010

Differential Scanning Calorimetry curves not only contain the desired information about the sample, but are also distorted by misleading information stemming from the instrumentation. In order to correct this distortion, NETZSCH has developed the “Tau-R Mode”. The instrument’s influence on the peak’s shape can now be mathematically eliminated.

This yields undistorted information about the sample and the processes taking place during phase transformation. The sharp peak in the DSC curve is an improvement provided by the Tau-R Mode: The signal shows a steep ascent on the left slope and falls to zero again immediately after reaching the maximum. Optimizing conditions with this software feature improves confidence in the evaluation of onset and peak temperatures.
