Langmuir-Blodgett (L-B) Deposition Trough

Firm: KSV NIMA

L-B Troughs are used to create, modify and study Langmuir films. A Langmuir film can be defined as an insoluble monolayer of functional molecules, nanoparticles, nanowires or microparticles that reside at the gas-liquid or liquid-liquid interface. The fact that these molecules can move freely at the interface provide great flexibility for controlling the packing density and studying monolayer behavior.  The trough also enables Langmuir film fabrication. It is equipped with a dipping well and a dipping mechanism. The dipping mechanism is used to transfer the Langmuir film onto a solid substrate at the desired packing density (typically in the solid phase). For more information please visit this page.
