The stability of emulsions is an important factor for various industrial branches, such as the food, pharmaceutical and petroleum industries. For an improved prediction and control of emulsion stability it is necessary to understand the mechanism of droplet coalescence on a microscopic level. We use microfluidic methods to study the dynamics of coalescence in dense flowing or compressed emulsions, as these are often encountered in industrial applications.
