Abstract

The experiments are aimed at the study of the interfacial dilational properties, under microgravity conditions. The examined systems are aqueous solutions of the surfactant n-dodecyl-dimethylphosphine oxide, at different concentrations and temperatures. Low frequency harmonic disturbances are imposed to the interfacial area of an air bubble. Also square pulse disturbances are imposed to each studied system. The experimental results grant information about the dynamics of air-liquid single interfaces.
