Sheet nozzle

Out of stock

Pack of 10 spray nozzles that create thin-film liquid sheets.

Spray nozzles to create thin-film liquid sheets. The spray nozzles are manufactured from borosilicate glass. With these nozzles free-flowing, sub-micron liquid sheets can be created. The sheets are tunable in thickness from over 1μm down to less than 20nm, which corresponds to fewer than 100 water molecules thick. At this thickness, aqueous sheets can readily transmit photons across the spectrum, leading to potentially transformative applications in infrared, Xray, electron spectroscopies and beyond. These sheets are used at free-electron laser and synchrotron light sources.

Customer Questions
Why do I need a hydrophilic coating?

Normally glass would be hydrophilic and such water would “stick” a bit to the glass. To create a liquid sheet, you would like the liquid to exit in a straight line, typical inside a vacuum chamber. When no coating is applied the surface interaction will influence the flow at the channel exit with will prevent the flow from exiting in a nice straight line. This effect will be less when a hydrophobic coating is applied. Only in special liquid case (specific solvents) we would recommend a version without coating, often an alternative coating is applied by customers them self’s in this case.
