Abstract:

The surface forces apparatus SFA described in this chapter is an experimental system for measuring the nature and magnitude of interactions between two surfaces separated by a fluid medium. Applications of the SFA in investigations of polymer structure, solvent ordering at metal and insulator interfaces, hydrodynamic flow in pores, and electrostatic and van der Woods forces DLVO theory, are described. jhd
