This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge or experience in calorimetry. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of calorimetry in general and the application to polymer science in special.
Each day of the two-day program starts with a series of lectures in the morning covering the theoretical knowledge by basic lectures and the discussion of applications and problems. It is followed by hands-on experiments on typical polymer samples and demonstrations of the different calorimeter devices during the afternoon.
