Determining the Surface Tension of Microliter Amounts of Liquid

Kirkness, Jason; Amis, Terence; Wheatley, John; Christenson, H K

Description

We describe a method for determining the surface tension of liquids by measuring the pull-off force between curved surfaces with a bridging droplet. The technique is useful for cases when only very small amounts of liquid are available, as in medical and
