Introduction and application of automatic drop profile analyzer for the software-controlled measurement and analysis of:

  • the static and dynamic contact angle according to the Sessile and Captive Drop method
  • the analysis of the drop shape according to the Pendant Drop method
  • the wetting behavior on solid surfaces
  • the surface free energy of solids and their components
  • the surface and interfacial tension out of the analysis of the drop shape

Dynamic processes and rheological behavoiur of surface or interfacial films can be studied with the apparatus equipped with video camera and on-line data processing. Adsorption of surfactants, polymers, proteins and polarity or modification of solid surfaces can be followed with high accuracy and reliability.

2004-2005: GVOP-3.2.1- 2004 - 04 - 0099/3.0
The modern SPM (STM+AFM) as a high performance surface characterization method and multifunctional measuring technique became of vital importance in several fields of chemistry, materials science, electrochemistry and development of biomaterials. With the aid of the financial support of the GVOP 3.2.1-2004-04-0099/3.0 project, we are allowed to utilize the SPM in national and international research programs and in the higher education (gradual and PhD level) as well at the Chemical Institute, Eötvös University.
