Shapes and fissility of highly charged and rapidly rotating levitated liquid drops (2017)
Journal Article
Liao, L., & Hill, R. J. (2017). Shapes and fissility of highly charged and rapidly rotating levitated liquid drops. Physical Review Letters, 119, https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevLett.119.114501

We use diamagnetic levitation to investigate the shapes and the stability of free electrically charged and spinning liquid drops of volume ∼1 ml. In addition to binary fission and Taylor cone-jet fission modes observed at low and high charge density,...

Magnetically Induced Rotating Rayleigh-Taylor Instability (2017)
Journal Article
Scase, M. M., Baldwin, K. A., & Hill, R. J. (2017). Magnetically Induced Rotating Rayleigh-Taylor Instability. Journal of Visualized Experiments, https://doi.org/10.3791/55088

Classical techniques for investigating the Rayleigh-Taylor instability include using compressed gasses, rocketry or linear electric motors to reverse the effective direction of gravity, and accelerate the lighter fluid toward the denser fluid. Other... Read More about Magnetically Induced Rotating Rayleigh-Taylor Instability.
