Contact angle goniometer is one of the most common tools in surfaces science. Since the introduction of this instrument by Fox and Zisman1 in 1950, dispensing the liquid using a syringe has generated pendant drops. However, using such approach at conditions significantly deviating from standard pressure and temperature would require an elaborate and costly fluidic system. To this end, this thesis work introduces alternative design of a goniometer capable of contact angle measurement at wide pressure and temperature range.
