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)

Self-assembly of microchips on substrates

Chia-Shou Chang; Ruoh-Huey Wang; Kuo-Chyuan Chen; Wu, E. Electronic Components and Technology Conference, 2006. Proceedings. 56th, 2006

We demonstrated a technique for self-assembly using a plurality of silicon microchips onto a silicon substrate and performing further self-alignment at a high temperature to form permanently electrical connection by the eutectic solder bumps. Self-assembly is presented by controlling the hydrophobic- hydrophilic surface property of patterned microchips and substrate, and then self-alignment is accomplished using solder-based surface tension for flip ...


Apparent surface tension in complex (dusty) plasmas

Schwabe, Mierk; Zhdanov, Sergey; Ivlev, Alexey V.; Thomas, Hubertus M.; Morfill, Gregor E. Plasma Science (ICOPS), 2012 Abstracts IEEE International Conference on, 2012

Summary form only given. Complex (dusty) plasmas consist of microparticles embedded in a plasma. The microparticles acquire charges of several thousands of electrons and interact with each other. As the microparticles are usually all charged negatively, they repell each other, and no attractive forces are expected. Here, we report on experiments in which an apparent surface tension was observed that ...
