This was used to create surfaces that could direct the motion of sessile water droplets.Patterned surfaces with micro wrinkled surface structures were prepared by thermally evaporating thin Aluminium (50500nm thick) (Al) layers on to thick pre strained layers of a silicone elastomer and subsequently releasing the strain. This resulted in the formation of sinusoidal periodic surface wrinkles with characteristic wavelengths in the 3 45m range and amplitudes as large as 3.6m. The Al thickness dependence of the wrinkle wavelengths and amplitudes were determined for different values of the applied pre strain and compared to a selection of wrinkle formation theories.Samples with spatial gradients in wrinkle wavelength were also produced by applying mechanical strain gradients to the silicone elastomer layers prior to deposition of the Al capping layers.

According to data from The COVID Tracking Project, the rolling average of daily new cases dropped from about 847 on Jan. There were 58 fewer people hospitalized in Arkansas on Saturday as the number of hospitalizations continues a recent decline, according to the Arkansas Department of Health. There were 750 hospitalizations, down from 808 on Friday, while the number of reported cases rose by 1,341 and there were 11 more deaths due to COVID 19, the illness caused by the virus, according to the health department.
These liquid marbles are highly mobile and can be regarded as completely nonwetting droplets possessing contact angles of 180. In this work, we show that they also provide a new mechanism equivalent to levitating droplets and provide droplets with small contact areas and completely mobile contact lines for studies of shape oscillations. Liquid marbles were created using hydrophobic lycopodium and droplets of water containing potassium chloride and were excited into motion using an electrowetting on dielectric configuration with applied frequency swept from 1 to 250 Hz..
