Nanobubbles at Hydrophobic Surfaces

Craig, Vincent; Zhang, Xuehua; Hu, Jun


The very existence of nanobubbles at hydrophobic surfaces is controversial. On theoretical grounds such bubbles should be short-lived, dissolving under their own internal pressure. Further, a number of highly surface sensitive experiments have reported results inconsistent with the presence of nanobubbles, yet other researchers observe nanobubbles, most notably using Atomic Force Microscopy. Here I attempt to reconcile these results, describe the unusual properties of nanobubbles and the...[Show more]
