Single molecule tracer diffusion studies of evaporating (thinning) ultrathin tetrakis-2-ethyl-hexoxysilane (TEHOS) films on silicon with 100 nm thermal oxide reveal a considerable slowdown of the molecular mobility within less than 4 nm above the substrate (corresponding to a few molecular TEHOS layers). This is related to restricted mobility and structure(More)
It has been well known for some years that thin liquid films form layered structures near smooth surfaces and free interfaces [1]. Thereby it is apparent that the dynamical properties of these films differ from those of bulk liquids. Besides the altered film structure, films at interfaces will be subject to hydrodynamic boundary conditions (HBC) [2]. We(More)
Single particle tracking with a wide field microscope is used to study the solid liquid interface between the viscous liquid tetrakis(2-ethylhexoxy)-silane and a silicon dioxide surface. Silicon dioxide nanoparticles (5 nm diameter) marked with the fluorescent dye rhodamine 6G are used as probes. The distributions of diffusion coefficients, obtained by mean(More)

Rhodamine 6G (R6G) dye molecules have been embedded into organosilicate nanoparticles to improve thermal and chemical stability of these marker molecules. We demonstrate that the well-established method of optical single-particle microscopy can be used to determine the number of dye molecules per nanoparticle in such hybrid materials. Analysing the(More)
