Let it roll

Car windscreens that automatically resist raindrops? Surfaces that you can clean by spraying them with water, which automatically rolls off the surface, taking dust and other particles with it? Just two examples of the practical advantages of liquid-repellent surfaces.

The future is inkjet

After decades of research into different fields of printing technology, 2008 marked a next turning point in Océ’s history. Océ decided to focus on inkjet technology as much as possible for future developments.Océ’s Marcel Slot and Herman Wijshoff explain the rationale behind that choice and where they expect inkjet technology will take us.

Cloud computing

Area of research: hydrodynamics and self-organization Clouds produce rain. Or not, as the case may be. What actually goes on inside a cloud is still not fully understood, undermining the accuracy of both weather forecasts and climate models.

Matters of the heart

What do airplane wings, inkjet prints, and our hearts have in common? Answer: all are subject to interactions between structures and fluids, leading to a complex and non-linear system of dynamic interaction, influencing each other’s behavior. Numerical or computational simulation can help grasp the essence of the working mechanisms in these systems.

"This is the golden age of fluid dynamics"

From studying the behavior of drops to discovering that there is more than one state of turbulence, Professor Detlef Lohse is one of the world’s leading authorities on the way fluids behave and interact with their environment. What makes this subject so fascinating, and what are the big questions researchers are trying to answer?
