"Outlines the scientific basis and experimental methods for a broad sample of surface analysis techniques, drawing heavily from established principles of physical and analytical chemistry. Sketches a simple low-cost method of tracking particles in three dimensions."

Table of Contents

Measurement of the surface tension and surface stress of solids; contact angle techniques and measurements; measurement on ion-mediated and van der Waals force using atomic force microscopy; measurement of electro-osmosis as a method for electrokinetic surface analysis; X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and static secondary ion mass spectrometry (SSIMS) of biomedical polymers and surfactants; evanescent wave scattering at solid surfaces; characterizing colloidal materials using dynamic light scattering; light scattering studies of microcapsules in suspension; three-dimensional particle tracking of micronic colloidal particles; low-mass luminescent organogels; chromatographic methods measurements of antibody-antigen association rates; the acid-base behaviour of proteins determined by ISFETs.
