INFICON Research Quartz Crystal Microbalance (RQCM)
QCMs have proven very beneficial in research applications due to their high sensitivity, real-time measurement capability, quick response and ease of use. Applications include corrosion, adsorption, gas sensing and polymer growth just to name a few. INFICON provides everything from complete QCM research systems with PC-based data logging software to all of the individual components.
RQCM is a highly advanced method of measuring film properties during processes such as deposition, dissolution or permeation. Up to three crystals can be measured simultaneously with <0.4 ng/cm 2 mass resolution. All data is logged and graphically displayed using integrated Windows®-based software in real time.
