Impact of a laser on a drop
In this amazing work by the Fluids group at University of Twente, a drop’s response to a focused laser pulse has been analyzed in slow motion. The drop reacts to the energy imparted by the laser in many different ways, such as
vaporization or even plasma generation.
This extremely violent reaction propels the drop to several m/s before it explodes or breaks up. Now what cool applications can you think for this ? Let us know!
