Stick, peel, or bounce: Controlling a freezing droplet's fate

Stick, peel, or bounce: Controlling a freezing droplet's fate

Oct 10, 2017 United States
When freezing droplets impact a surface, they generally either stick to it or bounce away. Controlling this response is crucial to many applications, including 3-D printing, the spraying of some surface coatings, and the prevention of ice formation on structures such as airplane wings, wind turbines, or power lines.
