This chapter discusses temperature modulated differential scanning calorimetry (TMDSC). In non-equilibrium states, enthalpy and heat capacity become time dependent. Heat capacity spectroscopy, including TMDSC, is one of the most valuable tools. It allows the measurement of time and via Fourier transformation the frequency dependence of the heat capacity in a wide range of experimental conditions. From the frequency dependence of heat capacity, new information can be gained for a better understanding of the molecular dynamics at the glass transition as well as during melting and crystallization. Comparing simultaneous experiments at two different time scales, defined by modulation frequency and heating rate, respectively, allows under certain restrictions, the separation of reversing and non-reversing processes in complex polymer systems. Among the wide variety of experimental techniques to measure frequency and time dependent heat capacity, TMDSC is the most widely used.
