Summary

Clearly divided into three parts, this practical book begins by dealing with all fundamental aspects of calorimetry. The second part looks at the equipment used and new developments. The third and final section provides measurement guidelines in order to obtain the best results.
The result is optimized knowledge for users of this technique, supplemented with practical tips and tricks.

Author Biography

Stefan Sarge is working for the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig, which is the national institute for natural and engineering sciences and the highest technical authority for metrology and physical safety engineering in Germany. He is e.g. head of the working group caloric quantities. 1990 and 2004 he received the Netzsch-GEFTA awards.
G?nther H?hne, born 1937 in Berlin (Germany) studied chemistry, physics and mathematics at the Technical Universit?t Berlin. In 1997 he was appointed Privatdozent after his habilitation in experimental physics. 1970 - 1999 he was head of the section for calorimetry of the University of Ulm, including academic teaching in physics. Since 1999 he is visiting professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology. In 2002 he received the science award of German Society of Thermal Analysis (GEFTA). He published 115 articles and 2 monographs on calorimetry and DSC.
Wolfgang Hemminger was working at the University of Braunschweig as well as for the PTB, the national institute for natural and engineering sciences and the highest technical authority for metrology and physical safety engineering in Germany. He is author of numerous journals and book publications. In 2006 he received the science award of the GEFTA and 1981 the Netzsch-GEFTA award.
