KLEIN grants are intended for innovative, high-quality, fundamental research and/or studies involving matters of scientific urgency. Palasantzas will use the grant for working on Surface roughness effects on DLVO forces between functionalized surfaces. The smaller the dimension, the more dominant the role of the surface area and associated forces. These control phenomena such as dispersal, agglomeration, adhesion and coating, and they are important in materials processing, MEMS/NEMS, and controlled self-assembly processes. We will attempt to gain more understanding of the surface forces related to surface chemistry, morphology and material optical properties in liquid environments.
For more information get in touch with Prof. George Palasantzas
