Contact lines are the locations where a gas, liquid and a solid meet. From everyday experience we know that such contact lines can be mobile, for example in the case of a water droplet sliding over a glass surface. However, the continuum description of the flow towards or away from a contact line implies that the forces diverge as one approaches...

Franken, M.J.Z. (author)
Despite the fact that moving droplets are very common, a moving contact line is a longstanding fundamental challenge in the field of fluid mechanics. This fundamental challenge is the main topic of this thesis in the context of ASML immersion lithography equipment. In Chapter 2 an overview of existing theoretical and experimental work is given,...

We describe a novel measurement method to study the contact line of a droplet at nanoscale level. The method is based on Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy (TIRFM), which uses an evanescent excitation field produced by total internal reflection of light. The evanescent field depends on the angle of the incident light and has an...
