Description Water Contact Angle
Manufacturer Ramé-Hart Instrument Co.
Model A-100


The goniometer enables measurement of the contact angle of water to a surface. The water contact angle is a measurement of how hydrophobic/hydrophilic a surface is. Such measurements can be important for analyzing/improving adhesion of thin-films or surfaces intended for wafer-bonding.
