  1. 1. Hydrophobic surfaces: Effect of surface structure on wetting and interaction forces

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Petra M Hansson; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hydrophobic surface; superhydrophobic surface; atomic force microscopy; surface forces; capillary forces; cavitaion; surface roughness; friction; wetting; confocal Raman; contact angles; surface preparation; Langmuir-Blodgett;

    Abstract : The use of hydrophobic surfaces is important for many processes both in nature and industry. Interactions between hydrophobic species play a key role in industrial applications such as water-cleaning procedures and pitch control during papermaking but they also give information on how to design surfaces like hydrophobic mineral pigments.

    Abstract : Interfacial features of polymers are a complex, fascinating topic, and industrially very important. There is clearly a need to understand interactions between polymer layers as they can be used for controlling surface properties, colloidal stability and lubrication. The aim of my Ph. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electronic and Molecular Surface Structures of Dye-Sensitized TiO2 Interfaces

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Hahlin; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
