Nano drops a million times smaller than a teardrop explodes 19th century theory

Droplets emanating from a molecular “nano-tap” would behave very differently from those from a household tap 1 million times larger - researchers at the University of Warwick have found. This is potentially crucial step for a number of emerging nano technologies, e.g., manufacture of nano-sized drug particles, lab-on-chip devices for in situ diagnostics, and 3D printers capable of nanoscale resolution
