  • We investigate the levitation of a drop gently deposited onto the inner wall of a rotating hollow cylinder. For a sufficiently large velocity of the wall, the drop steadily levitates over a thin air film and reaches a stable angular position in the cylinder, where the drag and lift balance the weight of the drop. Interferometric measurements yield the three-dimensional (3D) air film thickness under the drop and reveal the asymmetry of the profile along the direction of the wall motion. A two… CONTINUE READING
