KRÜSS Surface Science Laboratory

Faculty Supervisor: H. Jaeger
Technical Staff: Dr. J. Jureller

This facility is a joint collaborative venture with KRÜSS GmbH. The facility maintains several high-end KRÜSS instruments for characterizing surfaces and interfaces: a DSA100 Drop Shape Analyzer for measurement of contact angle and surface energy with temperature and humidity control and a K100 Force Tensiometer with microdosing to measure surface tension, interfacial tension, and critical micelle concentration. Newly added was an SVM3001 viscometer & density meter and an Abbemat 550 refractometer (Anton-Paar).
