Competence Centre °CALOR

The scientific work at the Competence Centre °CALOR focuses on the kinetics of phase transformations by means of thermal analysis. For this purpose, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is used predominantly. °CALOR provides the world's largest dynamic range (time range, approx. 10-4 K/s to 105 K/s for metals and up to more than 106 K/s for polymers) accessible for scanning calorimetry. New measuring devices including software (in particular chip sensor based Fast Scanning Calorimetry (FSC)) and measuring methods are continuously developed in order to continuously expand our competencies and fields of application.
