Recent developments of surface forces measurement are reviewed. The novel surface force apparatus was developed using the twin-path method for nontransparent substrates. New directions of the research include (1) interactions between polymer melts and (2) those between deformable surfaces of liquid droplets; (3) hydrogen-bonded molecular organization called “surface molecular macroclusters” at the solid-liquid interface; (4) resonance shear measurement for nanorheology and nanotribology of confined liquids.
