Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) system

QCM system which uses quartz resonator as sensor is one of the methods to quantify chemicals. The technique takes advantage of resonant frequency change of the quartz crystal as substances are adsorbed on surface. R3755A can solve shortcomings of the conventional way using a frequency counter and an oscillating circuit.
