::: LT-211 :::
A device for deposition
of monomolecular films
according to the Langmuir—Blodgett (LB) technique
A device for film deposition by
Langmuir—Blodgett technique LT-211
Langmuir—Blodgett trough LT-211 is intended for
- application of monomolecular films
on solid samples according to the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique or to the horizontal
precipitation (HP) technique
- formation of mono- and multimolecular composite coatings on solid surfaces
- modification of the surface properties (hydrophilic behavior, optical,
electrical properties etc. )
- fundamental research in ultrathin film fabrication and their use
as insulating and protective coatings, molecular electronic elements, in biology
for creation of bilayer lipid membranes etc.
||LB trough with basic accessories (Substrate clamping holder for fixing the sample on the dipper lever; Rig for film application by the horizontal precipitation method; A base platform featuring liquid thermostating by an external device)
||ADDITIONAL ACCESSORIES (OPTION)
||Layer-by-Layer deposition set including a rotating platform for vessels and a rotating patform for dipper unit
||A microdoser for feeding the deposited film on the aqueous surface
||A rotating barrier for the monomolecular film transfer into working (deposiotion) area
||A mounted unit for the tape substrate winding in set with two guides
||A set of
calibrating surfactants: stearic acid, behenic acid, acetyl alcohol.
1 Basic set akso inckludes control software (for Win32) and operation manual.
1 Basic set also includes control software (for Win32) and operation manual.
Software for LB trough control and data acquisition is a Win32
application running under OS Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista.
The software is built according to the modular scheme oriented to perform specific
application technique and provides all preliminary settings and calibration necessary
for the LB trough operation as well control over the systems (mechanisms of the
barrier movement and sample dipping/lifting) at the film application.
Acquired data can be saved in special format or text files and can be then
processed, visualized and analysed in the program itself or with third party software
(e.g. SurfaceXplorer package or Microsoft
