Bringing coating and printing science alive with apps


Bringing coating and printing science alive with apps

Guest talk by Prof Steven Abbott

For those who need scientific solutions to their printing, coating or wetting problems help can be just an app away, with live demos covering, (de)wetting, (forced) drop spreading, dynamic surface tension, levelling, inkjet, evaporation and more. In his talk Prof Abbott will show that a large collection of free, easy-to-use apps covering many aspects of coating/printing makes it possible for the science to be used by everyone.

The talk aims to encourage those who provide such solutions to go beyond a published paper and make their insights available on line to those who need them. A lot of great science in our area of interest is unused because many potential users don’t know that it exists, and if they know about it, they find it too difficult to understand and apply to their own situation.

Prof Steven Abbott is a PhD chemist from Oxford/Harvard who has worked in the coating/printing industry for many years and is Visiting Professor at U Leeds. He is now an independent trouble-shooter, author and app writer with a passion for bringing the best possible science to any specific problem, usually via a few apps.
