Low magnification video of an FeAl 8% droplet suspended in a slag with high SiO2 content, recorded in our HT-CSLM. The droplet can be seen to move rapidly, apear to swell and finally form a cloud of material dispersed throughout the slag phase.

High magnification video of an FeAl 8% droplet suspended in a slag with high SiO2 content , recorded in our HT-CSLM. The droplet surface can be seen to perturb and the level of perturbation grow and exponentially until spontaneous emulsification occurs and the entire field of view is clouded. Finally the droplet can be seen to coalesce at the end of the reaction.
