Differential Scanning Calorimetry

Learn Basic DSC Principles and Find Useful Applications for Your Workplace

Program Overview

  • Basic principles of DSC with an explanation of power compensation and heat flux modes
  • Important components of the DSC measurement cell, the innovative sensor, and modules for specialized applications
  • Measurement parameters such as the temperature program and choice of atmosphere
  • Why you should use DSC for your analysis
  • Application examples for different industriesDifferential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is used to study the behavior of materials as they respond to a defined temperature program. The technique measures the heat, in mW, absorbed or released by a sample as it is heated, cooled, or held at a constant temperature. Measurement results are presented in the form of a curve, from which the glass transition, crystallization, melting, and many other thermal properties can be determined.


    The DSC technique has applications in a wide range of industries. For example, checking the “fingerprint” of a measurement curve is a common application for quality control purposes. Other applications include investigating the influence of additives or different processing methods on a substance.
