VCA Optima Goniometer



A goniometer is used to measure contact angles.

Small drops of a liquid, often water, are placed on the surface of a sample. The angle between the drop and the sample is then measured.

Goniometers can be used to find the surface energy of a sample, or detect the presence of a self-assembled monolayer (SAM).
