Droplets on bent fibers

Abstract: Droplets on fibers are part of our everyday lives. Many phenomena involve drops and fibers such as the formation of dew droplets on a spiderweb, the trapping of water droplets on cactus spines or the motion of droplets on wetted moss hairs. These topics have been widely studied. In particular, Lorenceau \textit{et al.} \footnote{Lorenceau [...]

Three-dimensional microscopic light field particle image velocimetry: Publication in Experiments in Fluids

In February we published our article "Three-dimensional microscopic light field particle image velocimetry" in Experiments in Fluids. The abstract is below and the full article can be found here. Enjoy! A microscopic particle image velocimetry (μPIVμPIV) technique is developed based on light field microscopy and is applied to flow through a microchannel containing a backward-facing step. [...]

Three-dimensional microscopic light field particle image velocimetry, 2017

Abstract: A microscopic particle image velocimetry (μPIVμPIV) technique is developed based on light field microscopy and is applied to flow through a microchannel containing a backward-facing step. The only hardware difference from a conventional μμPIV setup is the placement of a microlens array at the intermediate image plane of the microscope. The method combines this [...]
