Contact-free calibration of an asymmetric multi-layer interferometer for the surface force balance

Abstract:

The Surface Force Balance (SFB, also known as Surface Force Apparatus, SFA) has provided important insights into many phenomena within the field of colloid and interface science. The technique relies on using white light interferometry to measure the distance between surfaces with sub-nanometer resolution. Up until now, the determination of the distance between the surfaces required a so-called “contact calibration,” an invasive procedure during which the surfaces are brought into mechanical ...
