Droplets are everywhere around us in our daily life; rain droplets impacting a window, a dripping faucet, but they can also be found in inkjet printers and dish washers. Droplets are also used in many industrial and medical applications, such as the cooling of hot objects with sprays, the spraying of crops in agriculture, or the administration of drugs via an inhaler. In this thesis, we study droplets during flight, impact, and evaporation in order to get a better understanding of the underlying, physical mechanisms, which aids to improve the efficiency of the processes involved in the applications.
