Researchers Immobilize Underwater Bubbles

APL-Olives-bubbles1.jpg

Controlling bubbles is a difficult process and one that many of us experienced in a simplistic form as young children wielding a bubble wand, trying to create bigger bubbles without popping them. A research team in CINaM-CNRS Aix-Marseille...

Tailored AFM Probes Created Via 3-D Direct Laser Writing

APL-Goring-tips.jpg

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a technique that allows researchers to analyze surfaces at the atomic scale, and it’s based on a surprisingly simple concept: A sharp tip on a cantilever “senses” the topography of samples. Now, a group of...

The Spin Racket: Ping-Pong Champs Are Intuitive Masters of Fluid Dynamics

Curve balls may help a pitcher strike out batters in baseball; and some nasty spin can make an opponent sweat to return a tennis serve. But more so than in any other ball game, in table tennis – where the ball is so light and so small –dedicated...
