Efficient spray atomization plays a notable role in society, ranging from effective medical delivery, to product manufacturing, to cleaner propulsion systems.
The emerging role of biomolecular condensates formed through a liquid-liquid phase separation process inside biological cells is driving a paradigm change in our understanding of cellular organisat
The wetting behaviours of liquids on solid surfaces play an important role for a wide range of engineering applications, including coatings, electronics, oil recovery, microfluidics, and inkjet pri
Rapid changes in pressure, such as in high-frequency ultrasound, can stimulate bubbles to nucleate, oscillate, and collapse violently, in a phenomenon known as cavitation.
Water scarcity is one of the grand challenges of our time. With less than 1% of the available water supply in the form of drinking water, new materials and technologies are needed to tap unconvent
Dr Rohit Pillai is the recipient of a European grant which funds researchers of any nationality to run cutting-edge research projects across Europe.
Evaporating arrays of droplets have attracted a lot of attention for their potential applications in areas such as microfluidics and surface patterning.
Capillary imbibition is a phenomenon in which a liquid spontaneously fills a porous solid due to the to surface tension (think water invading a sponge).
Scaling and mineral deposits that occur due to dissolved materials in water is a problem in many industrial applications.
