Liquid drops hitting solid surfaces deform substantially under the influence of the ambient air that needs to be squeezed out before the liquid actually touches the solid. Nanometer- and microsecond-resolved dual wavelength interferometry reveals a complex evolution of the interface between the drop and the gas layer underneath. For intermediate impact(More)
In the absence of gravity, the wetting of droplets on fibers is characterized by the competition between an axisymmetric barrel morphology engulfing the fiber and a symmetry-broken clamshell morphology with the droplet sitting on the side of the fiber. In the generic case of nonzero buoyancy the cylindrical symmetry of the barrel morphology is broken, yet(More)
