Project: Image Contactangle- and Surface tension measurement equipment.

project duration
01-DEC-01 – 30-NOV-02
Surface- and contactangle measurements are basical technics in the area of the colloid and surface chemistry. Up until now the department of Applied Analytical and Physical Chemistry have in use some easy, self constructed devices, based on the Wilhelmy plate principle on the one hand and on droplet formation on the other hand. It has been stated that cause of the simplicity these technics do have serious short comings. The project proposal deals the application for a contact angle measurement system based on image analysis, this allows to follow also the dynamic surface tension of a liquid under controlled circumstances.
