This month of November 2022 we celebrated the 32nd edition of the Dutch Soft Matter meeting, organised by Liesbeth Janssen (TU/e) and myself. In this occasion we counted as international keynote speaker with the great Prof. Sarah Keller (@KayTrue) from the University of Washington, and national speakers with Bijoy Bera (TUD), Ioana Ilie (@Ioana_Ilie_uva, UvA), Alexandre Morin (UL), Julien Es Sayed (UG) and Janne-Mieke Meijer (TU/e).
It took quite a while! but together with Hanneke Gelderblom (TU Eindhoven) and Christian Diddens (Univ. Twente and TU Eindhoven) we have finally published this complete review on evaporation-driven flows in sessile droplets (open access). It took long because we had to write about several tricky phenomena that are still unclear. In that regard, the contribution of Christian with his simulations has been crucial!. Although it is a review, we have developed some of the models further, added new simulations and computations to confirm some of the hypothesis and interpretations we propose, so there’s a lot to learn also for those experienced in the field.

Carola Seyfert has been working very hard on this beautiful phenomenon called “Marangoni Bursting” in the last months, and she realised that something “wrong” happened when she inserted certain type of polymer particles in the solution. She turned that “wrong” into something beautiful! and the committee of this year’s APS-DFD Gallery of Fluid Motion seem to have agreed. You can see the full 3 min video in our gallery of videos. Notice also the guitar score from the great Rodrigo Ezeta. Enjoy!
