The Physica MCR 501 is a shear rheometer which can be used both in rotational and in oscillatory mode . It is used to measure the storage modulus G’ and the loss modulus G’’ which determine the viscoelastic properties of the studied material.
For our samples we employ different plate-plate and cone-plate measuring geometries.
For investigating temperature-dependent phenomena the spectrometer is equipped with a temperature unit. All experiments are set-up and controlled by the software RheoPlus.
