Self-peeling of impacting droplets

Self-peeling of impacting droplets

Nature Physics, Published online: 11 September 2017; doi:10.1038/nphys4252

When molten tin droplets impact clean substrates, they either stick or spontaneously detach depending on the substrate temperature. Competition between heat extraction and fluidity controls this behaviour, foregoing the need for surface treatment.
