Comparison of Water Meniscus on Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic Surfaces

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

This research aims to see how varying humidity will affect the formation of a water meniscus between a tip and surface. Through a relative humidity range of 0-60%, a hydrophilic tip on a quartz tuning fork, QTF, is brought down to contact and retracted from both a hydrophobic surface and a hydrophilic surface. Recording both the frequency shift and voltage amplitude of the QTF, future research can find how friction is affected between these surfaces at differing humidities.
