Nanoparticles are of great scientific interest as they bridge between bulk materials and atomic structures. Sensitive real-time monitoring with QCM-D enables the quantification of nanoparticle adsorption rate and layer thickness. Layer-by-layer assembly of nanoparticles can be successfully studied in-situ to determine the assembly properties.
