When a drop impinges on a small target, a liquid sheet expands and breaks into droplets. The presence of particles in the liquid film leads to unexpected dynamics. Our video highlights how the presence of particles modifies the expansion, stability and fragmentation of a liquid sheet, which are critical in industrial and environmental processes.
