Discover new correlations by hyphenating rheology with spectroscopic/optical analysis

You can correlate the absolute flow and deformation characteristics of a material with processing or application behavior using rheological measurements. Yet the mechanical properties are directly related to microscopic or molecular structure. Combining rheometry with optical or spectroscopic techniques gives you a much better understanding of the material. Find out more by reviewing a compendium […]
