Thermal Analysis Techniques
Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA)
the temperature difference between a sample and an inert reference material,
, is measured as both are subjected to identical heat treatments
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
the sample and reference are maintained at the same temperature, even during athermal event (in the sample)the energy required to maintain zero temperature differential between the sampleand the reference, d
, is measured
Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
the change in mass of a sample on heating is measured
A group of techniques in which a physical property is measured as a function oftemperature, while the sample is subjected to a predefined heating or coolingprogram.
Basic Principles of Thermal Analysis
Modern instrumentation used for thermal analysis usually consists of four parts:1)sample/sample holder2)sensors to detect/measure a property of the sample and the temperature3)an enclosure within which the experimental parameters may be controlled4)a computer to control data collection and processingDTApower compensated DSCheat flux DSC
