Latest Surface energy Stories
Superhydrophobicity is one of most important interfacial properties between solids and liquids.
Friction is a key phenomenon in applied physics, whose origin has been studied for centuries.
VTT researchers have shown that surface tension on a solid material is unconnected to the energy required to create a new surface.
By Dhara, S Ion beam irradiation is a potential tool for phase formation and material modification as a non-equilibrium technique. Localized rise in temperature and ultra fast (~10^sup -12^ s) dissipations of impinging energy make it an attractive tool for metastable phase formation.
