Application Notes

SARFUS : Application to PDMS oligomer

Sarfus is used for the investigation of surface diffusion of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), a very useful material in many scientific and technological areas. For example, PDMS is used to transfer patterns in soft-lithography (microcontact printing) or as a
