Surface tension

View this topic in
Surface tension is a property of the surface of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force. It is revealed, for example, in floating of some objects on the surface of water, even though they are denser than water, and in the ability of some insects and even reptiles to run on the water surface. This property is caused by cohesion of like molecules, and is responsible for many of the behaviors of liquids. (Wikipedia.org)

Summary form only given. If the interaction between a laser wave and a solid micrometer-sized dielectric body has aroused a great deal of interest during the last decades, much little attention has been directed to electrostrictive distortions of soft interfaces despite important applications in biophysics (cell deformation) and propagation through droplet suspensions (fog). Indeed, in classical situations, high intensities are ...

High throughput screening is central to drug discovery. A category of assays known as heterogeneous assays have desirable properties for high throughput screening. However, their use has been somewhat limited, partly because of the complicated robotics required to automate them in microtitre plate format. In particular, some of the assays require washing steps that demand dedicated robotics. Another category of ...

A new collision model was put forward by Munnannur, which can be used to predict characteristics of unstable binary droplet collisions. However, the energy dissipation coefficient and breakup parameter in original model were unchanged, which cut down the prediction accuracy for the length and volume of ligament formed by the collision. Based on the experimental results of Grenn, the energy ...
