Phase Transitions – Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy
A variety of microstructures can occur during the solidification of melts depending on the conditions during cooling. The optical and physical properties of materials can be influenced by the generation of these microstructures and may decrease the quality of the resulting product or deteriorate the material. Typical examples for such unwanted properties would be fat blooming in chocolate products or „sweating“ lipsticks. The application of Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy allows for the prediction and consequently the prevention of such effects.
