Instrument specification

  • Technical aspects

    The device automatically analyses the shapes of hanging (pendant) or sessile droplets to determine surface tension or contact angle, respectively. Additionally, the device is equipped with a piezo unit that oscillates the droplet volume. This enables investigation of dilatational viscoelastic properties of the interface
