Langmuir Blodgett Films

Langmuir–Blodgett (LB) films are nanostructured systems formed when Langmuir films - or monolayers - are transferred from the liquid-gas interface to solid supports during the vertical passage of the support through the monolayers.


The Park Systems 2019 Materials Matter Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series continues with Langmuir Blodgett Films and AFM. Langmuir Blodgett Films and Adsorption phenomena are true nanoscale tools to access 2-D ordering at the air-water interface. Through the years, SPM, STM and AFM methods have played key roles in utilizing this method to investigate materials systems.
This webinar is the eleventh in our 2019 Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series “Materials Matter,” designed to help researchers understand leading edge developments in Materials Science Research and Applications using Atomic Force Microscopy.
