title Introduction


PEAQ DSC is a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC), measuring the difference in the heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and its reference. This techinque is appliable for studies of phase transition, melting point and such transitions involve energy or heat capacity changes.

For more detail, please refer to MicroCal PEAQ-DSC website.
