A07 contributes to the understanding of the interaction between mass transfer and wetting events by studying concentration gradients in complex fluids near interfaces. Confocal Raman spectroscopy will be used. A spatial resolution of <1µm is expected. This project is intended to deliver an enabling methodology to understand the interaction of mass transfer and wetting processes. Several different experimental configurations are envisioned; moreover clean room facilities will be used to develop fabrication processes for substrates exhibiting special morphological and chemical properties.
