Title: Advances on Drops Evaporation on Structured Substrates, Crystallization and Induced Motion

Abstract:This lecture will focus on some recent experimental advances on the evaporation of sessile droplets. The lecture will present results on the evaporation of droplets on viscoelastic substrates, crystallization during the evaporation of saline droplets, evaporation of nanofluid drops on structured surfaces and controlling motion of droplets on designed striated substrates and thermocapillary motion of drops on temperature gradients.
