Within the research project “surface activity analysis”, stretching over different metrological and technological topics, mass and nanotechnology for instance, improvements and adaptation have been carried out on different surface analysis devices in laboratories. The goal of this paper is to propose a review of the different developed devices, describing their main improvements for the past four years and to present the experimental results they produced.
