Langmuir-Blodgett film

[′laŋ‚myu̇r ′bläj·ət ‚film]
(physical chemistry)
A highly ordered monomolecular film that results from compressing a surface layer of amphiphilic molecules into a floating monolayer and transferring it to a substrate by dipping.

In the case of Langmuir-Blodgett films, even though high anisotropy ratios could be observed, this approach is limited to polymers possessing the ideal (amphiphilic) chemical nature and the quality of the films obtained remained rather low, leading to lower device performances as compared to spin-coated films.
They found that the friction and wear characteristics of Langmuir-Blodgett films could be controlled and improved by an external electric field.
The investigators sampled the Langmuir-Blodgett films at pre-specified surface pressures by dipping a freshly cleaved mica sheet into and out of the interface.
