The world is driven by liquid-vapor phase change – University of Cincinnati

University of Cincinnati professor Kishan Bellur is captivated by evaporation – a phenomena that is happening all the time, all around us, but few of us notice. Most liquid surfaces, for example, water in a test tube, are not flat. There is a slight curvature to it called the meniscus. As the liquid evaporates, it climbs up the side of the tube forming a very thin liquid film that is hard to see with the naked eye. Understanding the evaporation process and the behavior of these films are the focus of Bellur's latest research.
