Software Development

  • SFA Explorer - Data Analysis Software for the Evaluation of Interference Spectra from Surface Force Experiments

We developed the SFA Explorer as a software tool to evaluate interference spectra, as measured with the Surface Forces Apparatus. The evaluation is based on the 4×4 multiple-matrix-method according to Schubert. Please contact us, if you want more detailed information. If you are interested in using the software, more information is available per eMail.
