- ... Interfacial gas enrichment (IGE) of dissolved gases in water is shown to govern the strong attraction between solid hydrophobic surfaces of an atomic force microscopy (AFM) colloidal probe and solid substrate. However, the role of IGE in controlling the attraction between fluid–fluid interfaces of foam films and emulsion films is difficult to establish by AFM techniques because of the extremely fa ...
