Title: A Quasi-Containerless Pendant Drop Method for Surface Tension Measurements of Molten Metals and Alloys
Authors: Thiessen, David B.

Citation: Boulder, Colorado, USA
Abstract: A quasi-containerless pendant drop method for measuring the surface tension of molten metals and alloys is being developed. The technique involves melting the end of a high-purity metal rod by bombardment with an electron beam to form a pendant drop under ultra-high vacuum conditions to minimize surface contamination.
