M2 PRESSWIRE-August 1, 2019-: Recognised EUC Expert joins Droplet Computing
Once the HOLODEC data were collected and analyzed, the results were used to calculate the probability of the droplet spacing within the clouds versus the probability of the same spacing in a randomly distributed setting.
In a paper published today in Nature, the team reports that a surface covered in a fine mist of transparent droplets and lit with a single lamp should produce a bright color if each tiny droplet is precisely the same size.
An attempt has been made in the present work to obtain phase resolved-partial discharge (PRPD) relationship using the UHF sensor-generated signal during discharges initiated by the water droplet as an input to spectrum analyzer (by operating it in zero span mode).

Moreover, changes in droplet contact angles due to volume addition (or reduction) have also been investigated.
Sweeping effects can enhance dropwise condensation by accelerating droplet removal (Figure 1c), thus allowing the bare surface to re-nucleate with smaller droplets which have a lower thermal resistance (Tanasawa et al., 1978; Yamali and Merte Jr., 2002; Grooten and van der Geld, 2011).
An alternative approach is made up of lab-on-a-chip devices for droplet manipulation (digital microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip 2.0).
