This paper considers the practical reliability of surface cleanliness assessment based on the measurement of the spread (diameter) of microlitre droplets of pure water on "clean" soda-lime-silicate glass surfaces. Gravitational distortion of water droplets and droplet shape change due to evaporation were studied with the aid of a WYKO NT2000 interferometer microscope coupled to a TV video recorder. The authors conclude that for most practical purposes the method is acceptable, provided that measurement is based on droplet diameter.
