Contact Angle

Zeta Potential is the study of electrokinetic potential of colloidal dispersions. It is a measure of the electrical potential of the interfacial double layer on dispersed particles. This course introduces the basics of Zeta potential theory and basic functionality of the instrument, including a discussion of its strengths and weak- nesses and general guidance for its application. It trains users on sample prepa- ration, software usage, and data collection. Users will also be taught how to run standards to verify results. Following this course, the user is expected to be able to independently operate the instrument and perform basic data analysis.

Contact angle is the quantification of a liquid’s ability to wet a surface. The measurements are quick and easy to take, requiring little training. The instru- ment can be controlled manually or automatically to analyze the contact angle and wettability. This course introduces basic background theory and techniques, including a discussion of strengths and weaknesses and general guidance for application. It trains users on syringe installation, operation of the Krüss FM40 instrument, software usage, and data collection. Following this course, the user is expected to independently operate the instrument and perform basic data analysis.
