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)

Technique for preparing defect-free spray coated resist film

V. Kumar Singh; M. Sasaki; Jong Hyeong Song; K. Hane TRANSDUCERS, Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems, 12th International Conference on, 2003, 2003

Up to now some 3-D (three-dimensional) devices have been demonstrated using the spray coating of photoresist. Since the detail of the technical performance is not clear, the spray coating technique is still in its infancy. In this study, a technique for preparing the defect-free spray coated resist film is described. A solvent (thinner) vapor is used to fill the pinhole ...


Micron and Submicron Particle Production

Charles D. Hendricks IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 1974

In many fields of industrial interest, particle sampling and/or control is very important. However, the calibration and testing of sampling equipment have been difficult because of the lack of sources of uniform particles. In this paper a source of uniform solid or liquid particles is described together with the characteristics of the source and the particles produced. Fractional standard deviations ...

An evaporative drying process is being developed to remove the residual fluid phase from resorcinol formaldehyde (RF) foam shells once they are fully polymerized. This development is part of a microfluidic "lab-on-a-chip" approach for the mass production of inertial fusion energy (IFE) targets. The most-promising prospect for accelerating air drying to less than 24 h is to use a low ...
