Intro to Interfacial Rheology 2022

Interfacial rheology is a branch of science studying thin films that are formed at air-liquid or liquid-liquid interfaces. These films can be found both in vivo, such as pulmonary surfactants, and in industrial applications such as food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and oil. Interfacial properties of the thin films determine how the system is behaving when the interface is deformed.

Interfacial rheology can be studied with various different techniques, including pulsating drop, oscillating barriers, and interfacial shear rheometers.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What is interfacial rheology?
  • Why is interfacial rheology important in many applications?
  • What are the different interfacial rheology measurement techniques and what are their respective pros and cons?

Presenter - Susanna Lauren, Ph.D., Global Commercial Product Manager for KSV NIMA and Attension



Susanna is a Global Commercial Product Manager for KSV NIMA and Attension. She also has a background as an Application Scientist at Biolin Scientific. In her Ph.D. thesis, she developed fabrication methods for a new type of inorganic-organic polymers. Microfabricated polymer chips were utilized as tools for biomolecule separation in analytical chemistry.
