Seminar Experimental techniques to probe the mechanism behind surface nanobubble stability
Robin Berkelaar, Erik Dietrich


Nanobubbles are nano-scopic gaseous spherical cap shaped bubbles that are sometimes found on substrates immersed in exist remains yet to water. Due to their small radius of curvature these bubbles should dissolve in microseconds, however they are found to be stable for several days. Despite the increasing research on nanobubbles, a definite answer that tells us why they even exist remains yet to be found. In our presentation, we will present an update on the current experimental research, and how it relates to the “grand scheme of things”. We will present measurements obtained with optical techniques for enhanced time resolution as well as atomic force microscopy for enhanced spatial resolution.
