Droplets break a theoretical time barrier on bouncing

November 20, 2013

MIT research could aid ice prevention, wing efficiency, and more.


A ridge in the wing of a morpho butterfly, created by a vein within the wing, produces the same effect that MIT researchers found can make bouncing droplets form non-uniform shapes, which causes them to spend less time in contact with a surface. Image courtesy of the researchers.
