Abstract The past three decades have witnessed the rapid development of fast scanning calorimetry (FSC), a novel calorimetric technique that employs micromachined sensors. The key advances of this technique are the ultrahigh scanning rate, which can be as high as 10 6 K s –1 , and the ultrahigh sensitivity, with a heat capacity resolution typically better than 1 nJ K –1 . Nanocalorimetry has attracted much attention in materials science, where it is applied to perform quantitative analysis of…
