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)

Electroless plating of nickel on carbon nanotubes film

Yung, K.P.; Wei, J.; Tay, B.K. Electronic Packaging Technology Conference, 2005. EPTC 2005. Proceedings of 7th, 2005

For carbon nanotubes to be used for electronic application, nanotubes would need to achieve high interfacial adhesion with metal. In this paper, chemical vapor deposited carbon nanotubes have been successfully coated with nickel by electroless plating method. Ni plates were used as substrates as well as catalyst provider for the growth of carbon nanotubes. Without dispersing the grown nanotubes from ...


Dependence of initial drive field on switching rate in 50-50 Ni-Fe tape cores

Bishop, J.E.L. Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on, 1974

The drive field required for rapid constant-rate magnetization reversal in 50-50 Ni-Fe tapes rises approximately linearly in accord with Ganz saturation wave theory only after an initial nearly level step. Analysis of the initial stages of magnetization reversal in terms of the motion of domain walls severely bowed against the wall surface tension by the inhomogeneous eddy- current field leads ...

A Microfluidic Device to Acquire Gaseous Samples Via Surface Tension Held Gas-Liquid Interface

Sridharamurthy, S.S.; Hongrui Jiang Sensors Journal, IEEE, 2007

We present a relatively simple and effective method for acquiring gaseous samples into microfluidic channels. Hydrophobic polymers are photopatterned on hydrophilic substrates. Due to surface tension, aqueous liquid is confined by the hydrophobic polymers, but not completely blocked by a physical wall, thus allowing an interface for gas-liquid interaction. Here, the mechanism is demonstrated by using hydrophobic (poly)iso-bornyl acrylate polymer ...


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
