  • Moving contact lines of more than two phases dictate a large number of interfacial phenomena. Despite their significance in fundamental and applied processes, the contact lines at a junction of four-phases (two immiscible liquids, a solid and gas) have been addressed only in a few investigations. Here, we report an intriguing phenomenon that follows after the four phases oil, water, solid and gas make contact through the coalescence of two different three-phase contact lines. We combine… CONTINUE READING
