Abstract

In this chapter the experimental systems and techniques that have been used to study the properties of adsorbed polymer layers are discussed. Whenever possible we shall try to evaluate each technique, indicating limitations and pitfalls. It is perhaps useful to point out that no single technique can fully characterise a given system so that the best strategy is to combine data from several (judiciously chosen) techniques.
