We have investigated the rheological behaviour of silica nanoparticle layers at the air-water interface. Both compressed and deposited layers have been studied in Langmuir troughs and with a bicone rheometer. The compressed layers are more homogeneous and rigid, and the elastic response to continuous, step and oscillatory compression are similar, provided the compression is fast enough and relaxation is prevented. The deposited layers are less rigid and more viscoelastic. Their shear moduli deduced from the oscillatory uniaxial compression are much smaller than those deduced from pure shear deformation suggesting that the effective shear rate is smaller than expected in the compression measurements.
