The surface forces between colloidal particles are important in flotation, lubrication,
adhesion, rheology, materials science and cell interactions. In order to perform a
fundamental investigation of surface forces, model surfaces are usually employed
instead of natural surfaces. This is because natural surfaces are unsuitable due to the
degree of surface roughness, inappropriate geometry or chemical heterogeneity. Given
that the number of materials for which model surfaces are available...[Show more]
