The non-wetting surfaces have experienced an enormous boost of interest after the observation of superhydrophobicity and self-cleaning effect in natural lotus leaves.
Complex fluid-fluid interfaces arise whenever constituents (molecular and colloidal) residing within bulk phases become adsorbed and, in many cases, strongly interact.
While contact angle goniometry has been around for many years, we have recently developed a way to account for the underlying surface’s micro-scale roughness.
How does QCM-D work? Perhaps you know that a QCM-D sensor is made out of quartz, which is a piezoelectric material. But what does that really mean?
Proteins are vital for life and perform a wide range of essential biochemical tasks in all living organisms. It is important that the proteins are correctly folded and functional. However, sometimes the control mechanisms fail and accumulated aggregates transform into protein megastructures.
The effect of Surface roughness and wettability on biocompatibility of biomaterials and Medical devices.
