Users and Co-Workers

  • Erwin Vogler at Penn State, who works in biocompatibility and wetting of biomaterials. A recent paper, "Traube-Rule Interpretation of Protein Adsorption at the Liquid-Vapor Interface" (Langmuir, 2003, 19 pg 10342-10352) describes work performed on an FTA2000 and is available on his web site (under Projects) and from ACS by subscription.

  • Annual short courses taught by Professor John Berg now include an FTA200.

  • Article on use of FTA125 in printing at Georgia Southern University by Don Armel. Abstract only is shown in link, but complete article can be downloaded as a pdf file from page.
