When droplets become stars: charged droplets beyond Rayleigh instability

MPSD Seminar
The charge-induced instabilities of conducting and dielectric drops in an electric field have been studied over a century, starting from the seminar works of Lord Rayleigh, J. Zeleny, G. I. Taylor. The significance of the study is found in the presence of charged droplets in jets, electrospray mass spectrometry methods and atmospheric aerosols. In low temperature physics, applications of the confinement of electrons on the surface of liquid helium add new perspective on the significance of the study of the instabilities. [mehr]
