For a thin viscoelastic film deposited on a quartz crystal microbalance in a liquid environment, the change in dissipation induced by the presence of a film is proportional to the film's elastic compliance, Jf'. This surprising result is a consequence of the fact that the film is "clamped" by a viscous fluid.
