Laser can be used to Separate Two Liquids
Scientists have developed a technique to separate two liquids using laser, according to a report published on March 5, 2018.
According to the researchers, this new technique will have a wide range of applications. This will be helpful for making the techniques used in the production of computers, phones, drugs, paints and light bulbs much easier. To be used within the technology, crystals has to be produced by these products. Crystallization process cannot be controlled and this will make it difficult for the people trying to manufacture crystals.
However, in the new technique, the fluctuations in a so-called critical point are controlled using laser. They are also used to drive the system to a phase separated state. Professor Klaas Wynne, developer of this technique said, “It’s a little bit like making a cup of tea, stirring in some milk, and then using a laser to suck the milk out again. It may seem really counterintuitive but it’s all within the laws of physics.” Researchers say that this study is an initiative to completely understand the role of critical fluctuations in crystal nucleation. The main aim of the researchers is to gain full control over nucleation, which includes the type of crystal that is produced.
This new technique will be useful in the fields of paints and coatings and is expected to increase the growth of global paints and coatings market, as elaborated in the global paints and coatings market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
