Thermal-Generated Surfactant Flow at the Air/Water Interface: Experimental Observation and Theoretical Modelling
MetadataShow full item record
The thermal-generated surfactant flow has been observed experimentally by employing a floated Teflon ball. Theoretical models were then developed to quantify and verify the underneath mechanism. Further studies has been carried out to investigate the influence of the hydrophilic property on the nature of phenomena. These discoveries open up a new avenue for microfluidic applications.
