Evaporation Model of Micro-Menisci for Thermoelectric Drop Sensor

Abstract

Based on kinetic theory and thermodynamics, an analytic model of evaporation of a microdrop after it settling on a solid surface has been developed. Due to the axisymmetric meniscus shape, the evaporation process is modeled in one-dimension. Two scenarios with fixed sphere centre and constant contact angle have been respectively investigated.
