SUMMARY:Chuan-Hua Chen (Duke University)\, Applied Mathematics Colloquium
DESCRIPTION:Title: Self-Propelled Jumping Drops: From Ballistospore Launching to Hotspot Cooling \nAbstract: When two drops coalesce into one\, the overall surface area is reduced and the released surface energy can be converted to kinetic energy\, leading to self-propelled jumping motion of the merged drop. In this talk\, we will first illustrate the physical mechanisms of the self-propelled motion by experimentally validated simulations. We will then discuss a few applications of the coalescence-induced motion in biology and engineering\, including the launching mechanism of fungal ballistospores and the adaptive cooling of microelectronic hotspots. \n
