  • Application Area: Thin film morphological visualization at air-liquid and air-solid interface.

"The Langmuir technique is a powerful tool for building ultrathin films of lipids, proteins, polymers, and nanoparticles. This enables numerous practical applications, such as studies that mimic biological systems and recent studies that demonstrate the construction of photoelectrochemical devices using semiconductor nanoparticles. A Brewster angle microscope helps to visualize the morphology and structure of monolayers at the air-liquid interface. Market options are often costly, and despite the high resolution, it is not possible to move the microscope for in situ analysis outside Langmuir troughs. However, the MicroBam KSV Nima is very cost-effective and can be used coupled to a Langmuir vat or alone for thin film analysis on solid substrates. I believe there is no similar option in the market with the quality and reliability of KSV Nima, a Biolin Scientific brand."

The KSV NIMA MicroBAM is an easy-to-use instrument for non-invasive imaging of mono-molecular layers at the air-water interface

By detecting changes in the refractive index of the water surface in the presence of surfactant molecules, MicroBAM provides information on homogeneity, phase behavior and film morphology without the need for any external agents such as fluorescent dyes which could interfere with the Langmuir layer. 

The good image quality and lateral resolution make it an ideal instrument for the visualization of morphological film parameters (e.g. compressed film homogeneity, domain size, shape and packing). Real-time observation and recording of film structure enables dynamic activity to be captured.

The KSV NIMA MicroBAM can be used with most KSV NIMA Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett Troughs, to provide real-time image measurements as a function of time or surface pressure. The KSV NIMA MicroBAM connects directly to the computer via USB making it remarkably easy to setup and use.
