When a liquid impacts a solid heated well above the liquid’s boiling point, droplets can form, levitating on a thin film of vapor that helps insulate them from the heat of the solid. This is known as the Leidenfrost effect. Here a very large Leidenfrost droplet is shown from the side in high-speed. A vapor chimney forms beneath the drop, causing the dome in the liquid. When the dome bursts, the droplet momentarily forms a torus before closing. The resulting oscillatory waves in the droplet are spectacular. The video is slowed down by a factor of 100.
