Note: Particle adhesion and imaging of particle/surface breakage zone
2012 (English)In: Review of Scientific Instruments, ISSN 0034-6748, E-ISSN 1089-7623, Vol. 83, no 10, 106107- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
An AFM methodology to enable measurement of the adhesion of micrometre sized objects, having contact areas in the range of nanometre to micrometer, is reported. The method also enables imaging of the actual breakage zone on both the surface and the removed object to obtain further information regarding the breakage zone. The method is also useful for measuring consolidating systems, such as drying, curing, or annealing systems.
