FLOW14 the Inaugural International Conference on Micro & Nanofluidics took place from 18th to 21st May 2014 in Enschede Netherlands chaired by Professor Detlef Lohse and Professor Albert van den Berg from University of Twente. www.flow14conference.com
Photron was pleased to act as a sponsor of the conference promoting understanding and exchange of ideas in this important and fast developing field of research with applications in semiconductor industries, medical diagnostics, drug development and delivery, ink-jet technology and other significant sectors. In order to promote the use of high speed imaging techniques in this application area Photron sponsored the FLOW14 Video Contest. Conference attendees were invited to submit a short video describing their current research. The FLOW14 Video Contest received an excellent response. Examples of submitted videos can be seen at: www.flow14conference.com/index.php/applications
The winner of the contest was Ji San Lee from the X-ray Imaging Center, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Pohang University of Science and Technology, South Korea who's video submission entitled 'Ultrafast Air Evolution During Drop Impact on a Liquid Pool' described the use of high-speed X-ray phase-contract imaging techniques to observe details of bubble entrapment in air/liquid interfaces.
