Studying foam dynamics in levitated, dry and wet foams using diffusing wave spectroscopy


Isert, Nathan; Maret, Georg; Aegerter, Christof M (2015). Studying foam dynamics in levitated, dry and wet foams using diffusing wave spectroscopy. Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering Aspects, 473:40-45.

Abstract

We use diffusing wave spectroscopy to study the microscopic dynamics of foams. These foams are levitated diamagnetically, such that very high liquid fractions can be achieved. We find that at low liquid fraction the dynamics is dominated by local rearrangements, whereas at high liquid fraction the movement of bubbles is ballistic and large scale rearrangements are absent. This change in the microscopic dynamics coincides with a change in the scaling of coarsening on increasing the liquid fraction that we have found earlier.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
