Raman Spectroscopy and Gravimetric Vapor Sorption

In-situ Monitoring of the Crystallization Process and Organic Vapor-Induced Polymorphic Transition using Gravimetric Vapor Sorption and Raman Spectroscopy
Combining Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Raman spectroscopy allows for a better understanding of vapor-solid interactions between materials as it relates to structural properties. Raman data in conjunction with our patent pending speed of sound sensor now reveal […]

Co-Adsorption in Material Processing and Separation Science

Speed of Sound DVS: Moisture, Organic Vapor, and Co-Adsorption in Material Processing and Separation Science
Surface Measurement Systems’ new Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) instruments utilize the patent-pending Speed-of-Sound sensor. Measuring moisture, organic vapor, and co-adsorption isotherms, this unique DVS technology opens new areas of sorption characterization for material processing and separation science. Representative sorption kinetic data […]

Speed of Sound Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS)

Speed of Sound Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) –

“The only method to directly measure solvent concentrations.”
Surface Measurement Systems introduced new DVS products last year. These instruments extend the capabilities of our Dynamic Vapor Sorption family of instruments by introducing a revolutionary new sensor. The speed of sound sensor increases the reliability and accuracy of DVS […]

By Jan Gorgol
Cellulose is the main component of cell walls from plants, making it the most abundant organic polymer on Earth! Cellulosic biomass forms supramolecular structures comprising cellulose crystals as well as disordered, water-accessible fractions.
Recently, Carlos Driemeier and co-workers from the Brazilian Bioethanol Science and Technology Laboratory – CTBE/CNPEM, has […]

Effects of Humidity and Moisture Degradation on High Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

30 April 2015 | 09:00
By Jan Gorgol

The photovoltaic effect is the creation of a voltage in a material upon exposure to sunlight; it is how a solar cell converts sunlight into electricity. It was first observed by Becquerel in 1839. However it was not until the advent of Silicon technology’s in the 1950’s that photovoltaic cells […]
