Making a splash: fluid fragmentation from fundamentals to contamination

In this highlight by Inside Science in partnership with the American Institute of Physics, Prof. Bourouiba discusses how the unsteadiness, or time-variation of process, of fluid fragmentation upon impact shapes the properties and range of secondary spray droplets emitted. These findings are important for a range of applications in spray design and control, irrigation, agriculture, and health and infection control in indoor spaces.
