Researchers simplify tiny structures' construction drip by drip

Princeton researchers explore methods of using carefully controlled droplets as a way to make soft, biomimetic structures. The trick comes in controlling the droplets, which form under competing influences like gravity and surface tension. A new study, published Oct. 26 in Nature Communications, explains how a deeper understanding of these highly dynamic forces can be harnessed to cheaply and quickly fabricate objects that normally require a more expensive and time-consuming process.

Controlling Pattern of Droplets Could Lead to the Development of Microscopically Small Structures

Generally, popping the top on house paint draws people to look what is within the can; however, researchers at Princeton University have turned their gaze upward, to the lid’s underside ...
