In the world of submicrons to millimeters, capillary forces usually dominate over other forces. Given a fluid or solid object of size L, capillary forces are in general proportional to L, whereas surface and body forces vary as L2 and L3, respectively. Thus, as L decreases, surface tension becomes increasingly important. It is therefore not surprising that many natural phenomena and industrial processes are governed by capillarity. We have studied evolution and stability of solid thin films, micro and nano liquid films and threads, two-phase flow and heat transfer in microchannels, and dynamic surface tension.
