Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Modification of the surface tension of liquids by laser radiation is discussed as a means to investigate the molecular origin of surface tension and the dynamics of the superfacial processes that lead to and maintain surface tension. Sessile drops are used as a specific example.
