The traditional way of assessing etching properties can be time-consuming. But there are faster ways. Here we present a method that will help you assess the etching effects in one single wash cycle and in less than an hour.
Lipid-based systems such as vesicles, monolayers and bilayers are interesting as model membrane platforms and are used in various research areas. To characterize these systems, it is often necessary to use more than one analysis method. So which analysis methods should you use?
A basic requirement of any coating is that it should form a uniform, defect-free surface. Surface and interfacial tensions play a key role in that.
To avoid potential adverse effects, it is relevant to study how nanoparticles interact with their surroundings. Here we present examples of how nanoparticle interaction with a variety of surfaces can be analyzed.
Contact angle hysteresis is often measured with so-called tilting cradle or plate method. The measurement can be done either manually or automatically.
QCM-D is designed to detect minute variations in frequency, f, and dissipation, D. Here we have compiled a checklist that will help you optimize the reproducibility of your QCM-D measurements by minimizing unintentional changes of the recorded parameters.
