Abstract

The objective of this work presented here has been to study the adhesive properties of various untreated or treated polymeric surfaces, and to compare and study the relationship between the length scale of the adhesion measurements and the adhesion data obtained. The work performed involves adhesion-testing measurements in the range of meso- and nanoscale by a custom-built Adhesion-Testing Device (ATD) constructed by the author, and by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), respectively. The results were obtained on various sample systems including surface treated poly(dimethylsiloxane) PDMS by UV/ozone, differently treated dry core-shell latex films, and molecularly thin perfluoropolyether lubricant films deposited on silicon wafers.
