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)

Electron and ion emission from liquid metal surfaces

Swanson, Lynwood W. Plasma Science, IEEE Transactions on, 1991

The application of positive or negative electric fields to small-area liquid metal surfaces leads to very high brightness DC ion or pulsed electron emission. The stabilization of a cone-shaped structure by the balance of electrostatic and surface tensions forces is described. Electron and ion emission occurs by field emission and field evaporation mechanisms

Investigation and corroboration of a novel method to estimate the hydrophobicity of composite insulators

Hongwei Cao; Dong Yan; Jinhua Han; Huan Ren; Ming Lu; Zhongbin Lv; Huihao Guo Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation, IEEE Transactions on, 2012

Reliability is the most important property for insulators applied in electric power. As for composite insulators, hydrophobicity is a valuable and significant property in practical service. In this paper, based on dynamic contact angle measurement, a novel method to estimate the hydrophobicity of composite insulators is suggested. Using the new criteria, the hydrophobicity of composite insulators is estimated by receding ...

Peacock, A.T.; Haws, W.J.; Pick, M.A. Fusion Engineering - Supplement, 1993., 15th IEEE/NPSS Symposium on, 1993

Be-Be2C composite materials have been produced via two routes. The first produces a two dimensional composite with woven carbon cloth converted to the Be2C fibres and infiltrated with molten Be with the assistance of a wetting agent. A number of wetting agents with low atomic number were tried, the best being silicon, either in metallic form or as polydimethylsiloxane. The ...


Duplex reactive fluorocarbon films with spin-off resistant characteristics

Barlow, M.; Braitberg, M.; Davis, L.; Dunn, V.; Frew, D. Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on, 1987

As a group, fluorocarbons are by far the most common disc lubricants used in rotating storage memories. They possess excellent properties including chemical inertness, low surface tension, low volativity and moisture repellancy. They have, however, one serious limitation: the continual loss of lubricant from the rotating disc surface due to centrifugal migration. This leads to increased head to disc interference ...
