Sample text

The movement of the piezoelectric crystal tube is calibrated at large surface separations where no force is acting between the surfaces. For calibration it is an acceptable approximation that the expansion of the piezoelectric crystal (DD) is linear in response to an applied voltage (DV): DD ¼ cDV (4) where c is the proportionality constant. The force, Fc(D), is determined by virtue of multiple beam interferometry. The piezoelectric crystal is expanded or contracted by a known amount DD and subsequently the actual distance by which the surfaces move is determined interferometrically.

The phenomenon of cavitation was also observed by Christenson and Claesson [82], around 20 years ago, who used DODAB LB films and the equilibrium method for forces measurements. The direct measurement of forces between hydrophobhic surfaces in water were rather recently thoroughly reviewed by the above authors [94] and the reader who is interested in this intriguing topic is referred to this review and many references therein.

However, in many cases there is no evidence of presence of bubbles, but nevertheless, the exponentially decaying attraction is measured in the range of 20–100 nm. The origin of this force is still unclear. The interferometric SFA has served as an invaluable tool in studying the ‘‘hydrophobic attraction’’ among other things due to the fact that it is the only technique available today that enables direct observation of occurrence of cavitation. For instance, recently Lin et al. [89] employed a dynamic surface forces measurement method to study interactions between DODAB LB coated surfaces.
