A team of researchers from UMass Amherst and UCLA has developed a new, simple method of manipulating small droplets on a hydrophilic surface, an innovative strategy described in a recent paper published in the journal Nature. The team includes Tingyi “Leo” Liu of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department who is head of the Interdisciplinary Interface Engineering Laboratory. Liu says the new method reverses what scientists already know about a phenomenon called electrowetting, in which droplets of liquid are attracted to and spread on a conductive surface in response to an applied voltage.
