How ?

A bath of oil is vibrated and oil droplets are deposited on the surface. Thanks to the vibrations, the droplets do not coalesce, but bounce on the surface.

Bouncing Droplet

What ?

For specific values of amplitude and frequencies, the droplet start to move forward by itself : while bouncing, it create waves with which it interacts.

walker at sunset

Why ?

This object has been called a walking droplet, or a dotwave, and behaves somehow like an elementary particle, a particle and a wave at the same time.

emergence of statistical pattern in a 1D cavity

On this video you will see how a walking droplet in a small 1D cavity moves “randomly” if the memory of the system is high enough (ie if the forcing is strong enough, but still below the...

Rainbow colored dotwave

These pictures illustrate path memory : in the wake of the drop, there is a superposition of a circular wave due to latest impact and of “line waves”  created by the many previous...

Emergent quantization in a square box

Goal of the experiment : A walking droplet is placed in a square box, at the onset of Faraday thresold. The trajectory of the droplet is mapped. In the long time limit, does a self-interference...
