This week’s Image of the Week is taken from JPhysD article Microfluidic angle of repose test for Pickering emulsions, L A Chacon and J C Baret 2017 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 50 39LT04. In this paper the authors propose a microfluidic version of the angle of repose method to study the flow behaviour of fluorinated Pickering emulsions. The image shows the coalescence of Pickering emulsions on a glass slide, one week after production, for increasing increasing degrees of silicon nanoparticle coverage, φwt, in the emulsion, limiting the ability to stabilise collected emulsions.
