Performance-enhancing... research? New measurement could help elite athletes: York U

(York University) York U research has resulted in a new technique that measures the rapid process of liquid drops spreading on any surface. Interface scientists in the Micro & Nano-scale Transport (MNT) lab at York U have created an experimentation tool, built with an optical path using specialized microscopic lenses, captures the bottom view and side view of a spreading drop.
