  • Nanotechnologies dedicated to nucleation control

    This paper highlights the work of our group on the control and the observation of nucleation with techniques using nanotechnologies. This control is performed either by triggering nucleation in time with an external field or by localising it spatially in a microdroplet. Localisation in time using light irradiation induces nucleation by forming radicals; the use of electric field acts locally on ...
