Surface wettability is one of most important indexes for understanding the interfacial characteristics between a solid surface and a liquid, especially such physico-chemical properties as hydrophilicity and water repellency. This paper proposes a contamination-free non-contact wettability assessment system that is composed of a clean-air source having a particle filter and an automated system for image processing instrumentation and motorized alignment device for sample positioning. This system is compatible with wettability assessment in a high-level clean environment
