Abstract

This work uses a minimalist model for deciphering the opposing effects of Coulomb repulsion and surface tension on the stability of electrosprayed droplets. Guided by previous observations, it is assumed that progeny droplets are ejected from the tip of liquid filaments that are formed as protrusions of an initially spherical parent. Nonspherical shapes are… (More)
