Abstract

The evaporation of liquid droplets is of fundamental importance to industry, with a vast number of applications including ink-jet printing, spray cooling and DNA mapping, and has been the subject of considerable theoretical and experimental research in recent years. Significant recent papers include those by Deegan [1], Deegan et al. [2], Hu and Larson [3], Poulard et al. [4], Sultan et al. [5], and Shahidzadeh-Bonn et al. [6].
