Infrared video of a warm water surface in the presence and absence of surfactant monolayers
Bower, S. M.; Saylor, J. R.
Infrared (IR) videos are presented which show a warm water surface undergoing convective processes. These fluid dynamics videos show the water surface with: 1) no surfactant monolayer material present, 2) a liquid-phase monolayer of oleyl alcohol, and 3) a solid-phase monolayer of cetyl alcohol.
