Navid and Varun’s paper on boiling is online at ACS AMI ! And we are at the Cover!


Our latest publication on boiling droplets is online at @ACS AMI (Applied Materials and Interfaces) authored by my wonderful student Navid Saneie (now at Intel) and amazing postdoc Dr. Varun Kulkarni (now at Harvard), and awesome collaborators - Prof. Neelesh A. Patankar and Dr. Kamel Fezzaa@ANL

Herein, we show a new regime where drops 'appear' to boil on certain textures but could be just exploding because of hydrodynamic instabilities becoming dominant (shown through our cover art here by the very talented Mr. Rafeeque Mavoor that has been selected for the supplementary cover for the journal). Our results suggest that using nanotextures or smaller spacings may not be a good choice for enhancing spray-boiling heat transfer...
