With increasing understanding of the superhydrophobicity, the measurement methods to quantify the degree of hydrophobicity deserve some thought.
Surface science affects and contributes to areas: IT, materials and interface science, biomaterials, biotechnology, medicine, nanotechnology and cleantech.
Nanoparticle lithography is a promising fabrication technique. Unlike other techniques, it has a potential to be performed on curved surfaces.
The QCM with an added D measures an additional parameter, the dissipation factor. The QCM-D provides more information about the system under study than traditional QCM.
CO2-in-water foams and how to design surfactants for these systems
Thanks to the complementary information combinatorial QCM-D and ellipsometry can provide, these two allow one to simultaneously monitor both polymer brush swelling and deswelling behavior, as well as attachment and detachment of protein.
