Viscoelastic properties of ultrathin films are important in such applications as polymer-supported lipid bilayers, and the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) offers the ability to measure these properties in situ. In this study, polymer films are created by adsorbing polyacrylamide to gold and silver surfaces from aqueous solutions. The molecular weight of the polymers ranges from 10 000 to 1 000 000 g/mol, and concentrations range from dilute to the overlap concentration. Using a continuum… CONTINUE READING
