    Abstract. Gold films with a nominal thickness of 5-40 monolayers were grown on dielectric substrates and imaged by scanning force microscopy (SFM). The films originally consisted of well-separated or densely packed clusters. During imaging in contact mode, the morphology of the films changed...

    Abstract. Two triple-chain and one double-chain phospholipid monolayers have been characterised both on water and on different solid substrates by grazing incidence X-ray diffraction and scanning force microscopy. The formation of holes could be observed on water and on a solid support. SFM in...

    Both the processes of adsorption of double-stranded DNA and its desorption from the surface of freshly cleaved mica can be studied thanks to the Scanning Force Microscope (SFM). The adsorption can be investigated under different conditions with methods ranging from the simple count of adsorbed...

    Single molecule wide field imaging is applied to study the diffusion in ultrathin liquid films on solid surfaces. The results show a broad distribution of diffusion coefficients. This is tentatively ascribed to an anisotropy of the diffusion coefficient perpendicular to the surface and a slow...

    The thermal conductance across solid-liquid interfaces is of interest for many applications. Using time-domain thermoreflectance, we measure the thermal conductance across self-assembled monolayers, grown on Au, to ethanol. We systematically study the effect of different functional groups and...

    Self-spreading lipid bilayers at the solid/liquid interface can be used as a molecular transport medium in targeting nano-devices such as drug delivery and micro-total analytical systems. To gain physico-chemical insight in the selfspreading lipid bilayer, we have characterized the distribution...
