The Relationship Between Nanoscale AFM Adhesive Force Measurements using Calcite Crystals with Macroscale contact angle and Scaling Characteristics

Keywords:
AFM, force measures, nanoscale, macroscle, scaling

Abstract:
The growth of scale, which primarily consists of calcite crystals, is a major problem in water systems. AFM probes have been modified with calcite crystal in order to measure the strength of adhesion between the crystals and various materials. It has been shown that there is a direct correlation between this strength of adhesion and the rate of the growth of scale. This method allows the quick assessment of a material’s scaling properties. It has been shown that nanoscale measurements can be directly related to macroscale processes.
