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)

A Capillary Microgripper Using Electrowetting

Abhay Vasudev; Jiang Zhe 2008 17th Biennial University/Government/Industry Micro/Nano Symposium, 2008

A new type capillary force microgripper that can pick up and release micro objects by electrowetting is presented. Electrowetting was utilized to dynamically change the contact angle between the liquid bridge and the gripper surface to control the capillary lifting forces. A coplanar interdigitated gold electrode pair was employed to simplify the microfabrication. The lifting force generated by the microgripper ...


The mechanisms of PAN electrospinning nanofibers based on the effect of surface charges

Xiao-Hong Qin; Shan-Yuan Wang 2007 7th IEEE Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE NANO), 2007

In electrospinning, the addition of salts results in a higher charge density on the surface of jet. The theoretical analysis shows that the relationship between radius r of jet and the axial distance z from nozzle follows an allometric law in the form r ~ z-0.5 in case of full surface charge, and the scaling exponent becomes larger when the ...
