Introducing the new openQCM Q-1 Python Software
The new openQCM Q-1 Python Software: real-time monitoring of frequency and dissipation variations of a Quartz Crystal Microbalance through the analysis of the resonance curve
An exciting year
Hello, everyone. This 2018 has been a very exciting year. The openQCM project is growing beyond our expectations. We have launched 2 new devices and are working on the development of new scientific tools, which I hope will help the world of research in a completely new way. For this reason, we have temporary neglected […]
openQCM test of quartz crystal in contact with liquid
Here we report in detail the verification test of openQCM Quartz Crystal Microbalance in contact with pure water according to the theory based on Kanazawa – Gordon equation
openQCM verification test using Impedance and Network Analyzer
Researchers working at International University of Malaysia compared openQCM Quartz Crystal Microbalance with standard scientific instruments Network and Impedance Analyzer
Why the open source hardware will change the Science
A year has already gone by the launch of openQCM and there are many things to tell. When we have tried as private company, the way of the open source by launching one of the first scientific analytical instrument in the world completely open hardware, we would never have imagined this level of success. […]
openQCM frequency stability of quartz crystal microbalance in typical experimental conditions
We are now testing the performances of two different openQCM devices in the most typical experimental conditions in order to measure the frequency stability of the open source quartz crystal microbalance.
openQCM news and press review
The openQCM is really proud to share the latest reviews about the open source quartz crystal microbalance. This is also the opportunity to give thanks to people supporting the openQCM project.
openQCM the Java application for developers
In this post I discuss in detail the development of Java application for the open source quartz crystal microbalance openQCM. This post is intended for developers and contributors of the open source project. The entire project is available on github repository at this link
Quartz Crystal Microbalance openQCM: our first test
As already mentioned, we have just completed the design and the electronic optimization of the Quartz Crystal Microbalance openQCM. At the moment we already have 2 working devices. So, we are very glad to show the first test in liquid environment. In order to demonstrate the real behavior of the system we have preferred to make a video. In […]
