Surface Force Apparatus

SurForce LLC SFA 2000

The surface forces apparatus is used to measure the physical forces between surfaces, such as van der Waals and electrostatic forces in vapors and liquids, adhesion and capillary forces, forces due to surface and liquid structure (e.g. solvation and hydration forces), polymer, steric and hydrophobic interactions, bio-specific interactions as well as friction and lubrication forces.  
This SFA is the first to be installed in the middle-east!
