The prototype of a chemical computer detects a sphere

Researchers in Warsaw have developed a system that uses chemistry to make computations. After an appropriate teaching procedure, even a relatively simple chemical system can perform non-trivial operations. In their most recent ...

Drop (liquid)

A drop or droplet is a small volume of liquid, bounded completely or almost completely by free surfaces. A drop may form when liquid accumulates at the lower end of a tube or other surface boundary, producing a hanging drop called a pendant drop. Drops may also be formed by the condensation of a vapor or by atomization of a larger mass of liquid.
