Event details

In recent times the ability to manipulate liquids using electricity has become important for diverse technological applications including printing and spraying, in lab-on-a-chip microbiology, for manufacturing nano-materials, and in reconfigurable optical components.

Professor Brown will explore the science behind these studies and draw on his own research to show how electrical control of liquids can be used to create shapes that would not normally be adopted in nature, and to cause liquids to rapidly and completely wet down onto surfaces that would normally have repelled them.
