Abstract

Part of Special section on surface nanobubbles and micropancakes The exceptionally long lifetime of surface nanobubbles remains one of the biggest questions in the field. One of the proposed mechanisms for producing the stability is the dynamic equilibrium model, which describes a constant flux of gas in and out of the bubble. Here, we describe results from particle tracking experiments carried out to measure this flow. The results are analysed by measuring the Voronoï cell size distribution, the diffusion, and the speed of the tracer particles. We show that there is no detectable difference in the movement of particles above nanobubble-laden surfaces as compared to ones above nanobubble-free surfaces.
