We study the destabilization mechanism of thin liquid sheets expanding in air and show that dilute oil-in-water emulsion-based sheets disintegrate through the nucleation and growth of holes that perforate the sheet. The velocity and thickness fields of the sheet outside the holes are not perturbed by holes, and hole opening follows the Taylor-Culick law. We find that a prehole, which widens and thins out the sheet with time, systematically precedes the hole nucleation. The growth dynamics of… 
Playing with Emulsion Formulation to Control the Perforation of a Freely Expanding Liquid Sheet.
It is demonstrated that the entering of the droplets at the air/water interface is the limiting step of the mechanism, which is theoretically rationalize the successive steps in the approach and entering of an oil droplet at the film interface and the role of salt and amphiphilic polymer in the different steps.
Spreading and fragmentation of particle-laden liquid sheets
The fragmentation of liquid sheets produces a collection of droplets. The size distribution of the droplets has a considerable impact on the coating efficiency of sprays and the transport of
Phenomenology of disruptive breakup mechanism of a levitated evaporating emulsion droplet
Abstract Atomization of emulsion droplets is ubiquitous across a variety of application domains ranging from NextGen combustors to fabrication of biomedical implants. An understanding of the
An experimental study on particle effects in liquid sheets
Many industrial processes, such as surface coating or liquid transport in tubes, involve liquid sheets or thin films of suspensions. In these situations, the thickness of the liquid film becomes
On the universality of Marangoni-driven spreading along liquid-liquid interfaces
When two liquids of different surface tensions come into contact, the liquid with lower surface tension spreads over the other as this configuration minimizes the total free energy. This
Visualizations of sheet breakup of non-Newtonian gels loaded with nanoparticles
Abstract Impinging jet atomization of gelled propellants loaded with nanoparticles of energetic metals is important for rocket propulsion as gels combine advantages of conventional solid and liquid
Marangoni-driven spreading of miscible liquids in the binary pendant drop geometry.
Stroboscopic illumination by nanosecond laser pulses is used to temporally resolve the distance L(t) over which a low-surface-tension drop spreads over a miscible high- surfaces tension drop, enabling engineering of drop encapsulation for various liquid-liquid systems.
Marangoni-driven spreading of miscible liquids in the binary drop geometry
When two liquids with different surface tensions come into contact, the liquid with lower surface tension spreads over the other. This Marangoni-driven spreading has been studied for various
Destabilization of liquid sheets of dilute emulsions
One of the major environmental issues related to spraying of pesticides on cultivated crops is the drift phenomenon. Because of the wind, small droplets may drift away from the targeted crop and
Marangoni fireworks: Atomization dynamics of binary droplets on an oil pool
Surface tension gradient due to concentration and temperature differences induces Marangoni forces. The Marangoni effect has been extensively studied to understand its fundamental underlying physics

The Spread of Oil Slicks on a Calm Sea
It is a common observation that oil, when spilled on water, tends to spread outward on the water surface in the form of a thin continuous layer. In those instances where this layer is as thin as a

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
