As part of a NEDO project, researchers at the University of Tokyo successfully observed the behavior of micrometer-sized mist droplets being dropped on a high-temperature solid object. The University announced that the research resulted in the observation of the complex behavior of droplets, including droplets bouncing on solid surfaces.
The results are expected to be key to making the deposition of uniform thin films possible for a wider range of products, including three-dimensional structures such as valves and pipes as well as display monitors, for which effective thin film deposition techniques have yet to be developed.
