Converting Vertical Vibration of a Texture Ratchet into Horizontal Drop Motion
A texture ratchet is an anisotropic, periodic, microstructured surface that propels drops when vibrated with a sinusoidal signal at certain frequencies and amplitudes. For each input frequency near the resonant frequency of a drop, there is a threshold amplitude beyond which the drop starts to move. In this thesis, we study ...
