German term or phrase:Grenzfläche vs. Oberfläche
Difference between Grenzfläche and Oberfläche?
In a patent relating to cell protein monolayers: In durch Rekristallisation von proteinen hergestellten Monoschichten weisen somit alle Kristalldomänen eine einheitliche Orientierung bezüglich der Grenzfläche und/oder Oberflächen auf.
Can anyone differentiate in this context the Grenzfläche from the Oberfläche? I usually use "contact surface" for Grenzfläche, but now the two "surfaces" are colliding unaesthetically.
