Waves on a Bubble

Li Shen

I’ve been working on the dynamics of surface capillary waves in viscous fluids for the better part of two years now and perhaps now is a good time to step back for a second and see the small picture, afterall, most of my experimental work takes place at the nanoscale in my kitchen…

Being somewhat of a visual person, I made some GIFs to imagine what an artist’s impression of two capillary waves on a bubble would look like, it’s quite addictive!

W1 I – pulsatus

W3 II – LSD’d

W2 III – moonwalk

Made with Adobe After Effect with help from the capillary wave equation.
