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)

2018 7th Electronic System-Integration Technology Conference (ESTC)

This international event brings together both academic as well as the industry leaders to discuss and debate about the state-of-art and future trends in electronics packaging and integration technologies.


2018 IEEE International Conference on High Voltage Engineering and Application (ICHVE)

International Conference on High Voltage Engineering: DEIS has technically co-sponsored this conference since its inception in 2008. As of the 2016 conference, ICHVE is a fully sponsored DEIS event held every 2 years – once in China and once elsewhere in the world. The current demands for a large amount of electrical energy are resulting in new strategies for developing high voltage power systems, transmission lines, substations, and appropriate equipment. In many countries, the new energy strategies require the planning and construction of UHV ac and dc transmission systems. ICHVE provides an excellent opportunity for high voltage engineering scientists, researchers, faculty, industrial representatives and students to share their state-of-the-art research on topics such as electromagnetic fields; grounding systems; high voltage insulation systems; aging, space charge and industrial applications; high voltage measurement techniques and instrumentation.

Study on surface tension and adhesion in electronic packaging

Shijian Luo; M. Vidal; C. P. Wong 2000 Proceedings. 50th Electronic Components and Technology Conference (Cat. No.00CH37070), 2000

Different materials are used in electronic packaging, and thus there are many interfaces in an electronic package, and the adhesion at these interfaces is critical to the reliability of the assembly. Surface tension and its three components (Lifshitz-van der Waals component, acid component, and base component) are important parameters that affect the adhesion. In order to improve the wetting and ...


Valve-less micro fluidic transport via deliberate electrochemical manipulation of surface tension

W. Satoh; H. Suzuki TRANSDUCERS, Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems, 12th International Conference on, 2003, 2003

An on-chip microfluidic system was constructed which transports a liquid column in a micro flow channel by deliberately controlling interfacial tension by electrode potential. It features a low driving voltage and power consumption. The system consists of a flow channel and a four-electrode system with two gold working electrodes. The working electrode patterns were formed on the bottom and walls ...


Response surface methodology as an approach to optimize growth medium of indigenous strain of Bacillus mycoides for production of biosurfactant

A. R. Najafi; M. R. Rahimpour; A. H. Jahanmiri; R. Roostaazad; D. Arabian; M. Soleimani 2010 2nd International Conference on Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering, 2010

In this study, we have investigated the potential of a native bacterial strain isolated from an Iranian oil field for the production of biosurfactant. The bacterium was identified to be Bacillus mycoides by biochemical tests and 16S ribotyping. The biosurfactant, which was produced by this bacterium, was able to reduce the surface tension of media to 34 mN/m. Biosurfactant production ...


Quantitative specific binding of breast cancer cells in an antibody-functionalized microchamber array

The system performance of an antibody-functionalized microchamber array, developed for selectively binding target cancer cells, is quantitatively characterized. The devices are designed to allow accurate counting of loaded and captured cells from heterogeneous suspensions. Specific interaction between cancer cell receptors and immobilized surface ligands has been demonstrated under static conditions. Performance measures such as specificity, sensitivity and accuracy are uniquely ...


On a Mathematical Theory of Decompression

Karl H. Dieter IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1967

A theory is presented on the decompression procedure required after diving and on the accumulation of gases in the blood and in tissues during a dive. It is postulated that the decompression procedure must be such that at no time the partial pressure of the dissolved gases exceeds the external pressure. It is shown that the partial pressure of dissolved ...
