Examples

  • In most liquids, cooler regions will have a higher surface tension than warmer ones-and this imbalance can cause the liquid to flow from warmer - to cooler-temperature regions, a process known as thermocapillary flow.

  • Their model, Troian says, "exhibited a self-organizing instability that was able to reproduce the strange formations," and showed that nanopillars, in fact, form not via pressure fluctuations but through a simple physical process known as thermocapillary flow.
