Interaction between basic components of matter: atoms, molecules, nano- and micro particles. Forces that occur between surfaces/particles at the nanoscale including Van der Waals, dipole, electric, electric double layer, hydrogen, ionic, and adhesion forces. Modern achievements in studying these forces with the help of the force apparatus and atomic force microscopy. DLVO theory, Derjaguin approximation. Analysis of experimental data to extract the force parameters. Prerequisites: Senior or graduate standing
