Welcome to DataPhysics Instruments
God made the bulk, surfaces were invented by the devil. - Wolfgang Pauli (1900 - 1958) Nobel laureate in Physics
Pauli’s quote illustrates that the analysis of surfaces and interfaces is quite a challenging task. True to our motto
Understanding interfaces, DataPhysics Instruments has been meeting this challenge since 1997 and providing researchers in science and industry, around the globe, with highly specialized, application targeted measuring instruments.
With our extensive portfolio of measuring devices and complementing accessories as well as our well equipped application center we ensure that everyone has access to the necessary instrumentation to
look the devil in the face. Last but not least our seminars, webinars and knowledge database guarantee an easy to grasp knowledge transfer so you are able to understand interfaces as well as we do.
Understanding Interfaces - Where others regard interfaces as a mystery, we provide clarity

Research: How spontaneous charging influences the motion of drops on a tilted surface
In April 2022, authors Xiaomei Li, from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, et al. have published an article with the title
Spontaneous charging affects the motion of sliding drops in Nature Physics. They have found that the drop motion on a tilted surface is not only determined by viscous dissipation and activated processes, but also by electrostatic forces. We are proud that one of our contact angle goniometers of the OCA series was used in the experiments conducted for this study. The entire publication can be read on the journal's website.

Press release: Measuring-device-software dpiMAX now available
The German measuring device manufacturer DataPhysics Instruments has developed a new, innovative software for the contact angle goniometers of its OCA-series: dpiMAX. The software dpiMAX guides the operator, step by step, through the entire workflow and can therefore be operated intuitively. In addition, dpiMAX impresses with a well-organized user interface, which facilitates focused work. Furthermore, several smart functions make measuring especially easy and convenient.

Research: How structured surfaces can influence the dewetting behavior of water droplets during icing and melting cycles
In January 2022, the authors Lizhong Wang et al. published an article in Nature Communications with the title
Spontaneous dewetting transitions of droplets during icing and melting cycle. In it, they describe how the structure of a surface can influence the behavior of a droplet during freezing and melting. We are proud that one of our contact angle goniometers of the OCA series was used in the experiments conducted for this study. The entire publication can be read on the journal's website.

Press release: Efficient double dosing system for fast surface energy measurements now available
The pressure-based double dosing system DDS-P, developed by DataPhysics Instruments, is now available. The DDS-P is compatible with many contact angle meters of the OCA-series. Together, they can measure the surface energy of a solid easily and efficiently in less than one second. Therefore, the DDS-P is designed specifically for power-users in quality assurance as well as research and development departments with high throughput rates.
