Kibron MicroTrough is a family of versatile Langmuir and Langmuir Blodgett troughs for the preparation of thin films (monolayers) and for further transfer of these films onto solid substrates using Langmuir-Blodgett and Langmuir-Schaefer techniques. The core technology, the proprietary Kibron sensor (0.2 microgram resolution), allows to detect surface pressure and measure compression isotherms with a very high sensitivity, better than 0,01 mN/m, yielding excellent reproducibility. The technology allows also for very small subphase volumes with regard to both surface tension and pressure measurements; accordingly, LB coatings can be deposited on small surface area substrates.
Trough models for various purposes are available in our webshop or on request. Custom trough designs, including previously sold troughs, are also available upon request. Expand the range of experimental possibilities by adding the accessories of your choice; Dip coaters, Troughs and Surface potentiometers...
