Abstract

Temperature-modulated differential scanning calorimetry (TMDSC) is known to have the ability to measure heat capacity of materials more accurately than the conventional differential scanning calorimeter. However, the accuracy of the measured heat capacity displays significant dependence on various experimental parameters such as period of modulation (p), amplitude of modulation (a), geometry of sample (g), heating rate (r), etc. One of the key features of this system is the ability to measure heat capacity under quasi-isothermal conditions. In the present investigation, heat capacity of a well-established system namely sapphire and thoria was measured by TMDSC under dynamic mode and also under quasi-isothermal mode. The experimental parameters, mentioned above p, a, g, and r are varied to establish the conditions for measuring heat capacity accurately.
