17 Jan 2018

This video, taken at 500 frames per second, shows the Marangoni effect in action. The researchers introduced a surfactant—a liquid with lower surface tension—to the surface of water. They used hollow glass spheres, which naturally float at the water surface, so a camera could capture the process. (Video: Mahesh Bandi)
