Brown University engineers have devised a new method of measuring the stickiness of micro-scale surfaces. The technique could be useful in designing and building micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), devices with microscopic moving parts. At the scale of bridges or buildings, the most important f more
Combining two different polymer forms can switch manufacturing of silicone parts from molding, casting and spin coating of simple forms to 3-D printing of complex geometries with better mechanical characteristics and better biological adhesion, according to a team of Penn State researchers. "So far, more
A Korean research team, affiliated with UNIST has presented a new type of underwater adhesives that are tougher than the natural biological glues that mussels normally use to adhere to rocks, ships, and larger sea critters. This has attracted much attention as a technology that surpass the limits of more
The Seminar by Anton Paar takes place in Newburgh, NY.
Seminar content - Fundamentals and applications of tensiometry - Static and dynamic methods for measuring surface and interfacial tension of liquids - Demonstration of methods described in lectures - Example applications from research and development presented by guest speakers - Determination of p
Seminar content - Theoretical introduction to contact angle, surface free energy and adhesion - Illustration of how contact angle, surface free energy and adhesion are related - Detailed explanation of various measurement techniques - Presentation of application cases and solutions - Demonstration
Geoscientists, biologists and chemists at the University of Tübingen are working in collaboration with IFAM (Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials in Bremen, Germany) to uncover the workings of insect surface adhesion. The goal of this project is the synthesis of an adhesive based on insect secretions. more
