How to study the wettability of the contact lens?

Contact lens should support a continuous tear film for optimum visual clarity. It should also resist the sorption of tear components as deposition can lead to decreased visual clarity and discomfort. Wettability of the surface affects both the tear film as well as biocompatibility of the lens.

Which surface free energy method should be used?

You might find it confusing when seeing all the different methods for surface free energy calculations. As surface free energy can give you more information on your surface compared to the contact angle measurements alone, it is time well spent to study the different theories more in detailed.

How to check the transformer oil quality based on ASTM D971 and IEC 62961 standards?

Regular inspection of the transformer oil quality is important to ensure the operation of the transformer. Several methods are available, but the newly released IEC 62691 standard is based on the interfacial tension measurement between water and the transformer oil.
