QUV Ultraviolet/Solar Eye

Q-Lab’s QUltraviolet/Solar Eye (QUV/SE) uses fluorescent UV lamps to reproduce months or years worth of damaging effects of sunlight and dew in only a few days or weeks.

The QUV/SE features a Solar Eye Irradiance Controller that continually monitors and maintains a desired level of irradiance for precise control of UV light intensity assuring reproducible test results. The QUV/SE can produce cycles of wetness alternating with UV to create a situation similar to nature.

Symyx Rapid Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC)TM is a high throughput method for characterizing polymer molecular weight and molecular weight distribution. This system includes a sample preparation system that is used to dilute the polymer samples and inject the samples into the GPC system. The sample preparation system has heated liquid dispensing pipettes for handling viscous polymers. The GPC system uses high-speed columns and an evaporative light scattering detector. Samples can be analyzed in as little as 10 minutes.

The E4991A RF impedance/material analyzer offers ultimate impedance measurement performance and powerful built in analysis function. It will provide innovations in R&D of components and circuit designers who evaluate components in the range of 3 GHz. The E4991A uses an RF-IV technique, as opposed to the reflection measurement technique, for more accurate impedance measurement over wide impedance range. Basic impedance accuracy is +/-0.8%. High Q accuracy enables low-loss component analysis. The internal synthesizer sweeps frequency from 1 MHz to 3 GHz with 1 mHz resolution.

TA Instruments’ ARES rheometer offers unique separate motor and transducer technology for quality measurements. The ARES rheometer is capable of measuring stress independently of the applied shear deformation. The ARES rheometer is used to study various properties of viscoelastic matierals including loss modulus, storage modulus, relaxation modulus, and viscosity as a function of temperature, time, frequency or strain.
Applications
§ Provides information on viscosity
§ Determines loss and storage modulus
