Surfaces are all around us. To control the macroscale we need to understand and tune the nanoscale. To our aid, we use analytical tools, such as QCM-D
With increasing understanding of the superhydrophobicity, the measurement methods to quantify the degree of hydrophobicity deserve some thought.
The QCM-D, which is an extended version of the QCM, is particularly suitable for the characterization of soft layers.
A Quartz Crystal Microbalance or QCM, is essentially a balance for very small masses. But why would anyone want to weigh nanogram variations of a material?
