X-ray studies of the density depletion at hydrophobic water-solid interfaces

Markus Mezger
In this work, the interfacial structure of water in contact with hydrophobic substrates has been studied by high-energy x-ray reflectivity. The microscopic understanding of the interaction of water with hydrophobic and hydrophilic materials is of utmost importance for the quantitative description of the properties of water in natural and technological environments. All interfacial phenomena related to water, such as wetting, drying, or lubrication in confined geometries, crucially depend on the details of this interaction. However,...
