New, constant diameter NeedleProbes are enabling unique measurements at the liquid/air interface. These NeedleProbes' cylindrical geometry enables a new area of research for liquid studies. AFM can now be used to measure surface tension, contact angle, meniscus height, evaporation rate and viscosity - all in a single force distance curve.
