The Harmony of Art and Science: Droplet Holography
September 23, 2009
Little drops of water Little grains of sand Make the mighty ocean And the beauteous land. . . ., wrote Mrs. J.A. Carney in 1845. Artists like Martin Waugh have wonderful pictures of water drops (and ice crystals) exhibited as liquid sculptures (go to, for instance, http://www.liquidsculpture.com/fine_art/). A picture, however, is only two-dimensional. At the University of Dayton (UD), researchers are looking into the detailed nature of these little drops, using holography to recreate their exact three-dimensional shape in order to understand how exactly they deform when they impact fast moving surfaces such as the windshields of aircraft traveling through rain.
