Q and T are experimental parameters. No other technique has Direct Access to a materials: Enthalpy ( H ) Entropy ( S ) Free Energy (really important!) Why Calorimetry? Why Not?
The Free Energy of a material or system is essentially the solution for all the thermodynamic parameters at all temperatures. BUT WAIT, there is more than one Free Energy! So, which is it? ( Thats a good reason. ) At constant pressure: Gibbs Free Energy ( G ) Favored by experimentalists At constant volume: Helmholtz Free Energy ( A ) Favored by theorists ( no work ) OK. Why Free Energy?
I. Fix Q input and measure resulting T. Relaxation, Modulation (AC), etc. II. Control Q input to maintain a fixed T. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) Two Types of Calorimetry
The temperature increase due to an applied heating power is : R e - external thermal resistance linking the sample+cell to the bath. P - applied heating power (heat current). Temperature What a minute! Looks like Ohms Law!
Technical Notes 1999: TA Instruments, Inc. Typical DSC Setup
THE Enthalpy: What DSC sees: DSC POV of Enthalpy
Combination of Type I and II Calorimetry Differential Heat Flow (Power): dQ/dt = T/R = C p + f(T, t) Add a modulation to the heating ramp Kinetic heat flow, f(T, t), contains the induced T-oscillations New Technique: Modulation DSC
P. F. Sullivan and G. Seidel, Phys. Rev. 173, 679 (1968). Applied AC power induces temperature oscillations: C p - Heat capacity P 0 - Amplitude of the applied power (~ 0.1 mW) - Heating frequency (~ 100-200 mrad/s) T ac - Amplitude of temperature oscillations (~ 2-15 mK) AC-C: Basic View
Applying heating power sinusoidally as: will induce sinusoidal temperature oscillations: T b - bath temperature. T DC - DC temperature rise ( rms heating ). T ac e j( t+ ) - temperature oscillations. Heating Power Modulation
From a one-lump thermal model, the temperature oscillation amplitude is : e = R e C- external time constant. ii - internal time constant: ii 2 = s 2 + c 2 ( root-sum-squared ) R s - sample thermal resistance. R e - external thermal resistance. C = C s + C c - TOTAL heat capacity. Modulation Amplitude
In the plateau, THE phase shift is : The reduced phase shift (, T ) is : e = R e C- external time constant. i = s + c - internal time constant (sum). For small (small angle): Modulation Phase Shift
The total heat capacity of the cell+sample is : If : Then : AC-C: Heat Capacity What?!? After all that, were back where we started!
Nano-colloidal dispersion: Liquid Crystal + Aerosil LC = 8CB(4-cyano-4-octylbiphenyl) Aerosil = type 300 ( 7 nm, –OH coated, SiO 2 spheres) Mass-fractal, weak H-bonded, gel. Sample: 8CB+aerosil with S = 0.10 g cm Complex Fluid Example
~ 20 mg of Sample Constant Applied Power ( Joule heating ) f = 15 mHz I – N = 312.24 K N – SmA = 305.31 K AC-C: 8CB+Aerosil
C p a Dynamic Response Function? Of course, any thermodynamic quantity results from an ensemble and time average. C p looks static because it fluctuates too fast! The experimental time (frequency ) window sets a partition between static and fast relaxations. Static = slow modes/evolution of enthalpy Fast = phonons (rapid thermal transport) Relaxation process has a characteristic time When, C p ( ) will be complex.
Linear Response Theory Enthalpy Correlation Function: Complex Heat Capacity: Static Part: Fast Part: Slowly Relaxing Enthalpy Fluctuation:
AC-C*: Complex C p ( ) If c << s, then i = ii. The Real and Imaginary parts of C p ( ) are: Complex frequency dependence contained in.
Concentration Driven Transitions Concentration dependent states of matter (phases) are important in many systems. Phase Diagrams Temperature scans at fixed composition. Temperature FIXED Heat WILL flow. Composition scanned System may not be CLOSED. Volume = Thermodynamic Variable. ACC can measure C p under many different conditions. ACC done at one T as function of time = ICSC.
