Our work titled "Insights into the dynamics of wake flame in a freely falling droplet" is now accepted for publication in Physics of Fluids. Here we looked into the flame structure and topology in the framework of a freely falling droplet. Congratulations to the team. Team: Gautham V. and Thirumalai. K., Saptarshi Basu Description: The combustion of a freely falling dodecane droplet has been studied experimentally in a droptower-like facility under ambient conditions. A uniq
Our Physical Review Fluids paper "Penetration and secondary atomization of droplets impacted on wet facemasks" is now selected to be highlighted in Physics Magazine by American Physical Society. Physics magazine highlights works that will change the course of research, inspire a new way of thinking, or spark curiosity. This is indeed great news to see our work getting appreciated.

Our paper titled Penetration and secondary atomization of droplets impacted on wet facemasks is now accepted for publication in Physical Review Fluids as a special invited article. Here we demonstrate the efficacy of wet facemasks (after continuous usage) in the context of covid. This paper is also chosen for the APS DFD highlight and press release. https://journals.aps.org/prfluids/accepted/d107fS0eT7f10109110330f4bae7b00a7446193d3?fbclid=IwAR00EPutMtQ-UuAfEv5gOkOyUd330AcyUD
