Laser-induced nucleation of potassium chloride was achieved using an evanescent wave. Unprecedented localization of the time and position of nucleation, within 5 ns and within 100 nm of the glass−solution interface, respectively, has been achieved with this method.
- laser-induced nucleation
- hydrophobic coatings
- evanescent wave
