A project to explore drops suspended by sub-Faraday wave threshold vertical fluid oscillations and then interacting with Faraday waves (surface gravity waves) exhibit a kind of wave-particle duality. This project shares much with the study of antibubbles as the bounce of a drop off the liquid surface is mediated via a think layer of viscous air.

Parametric oscillations: see wiki and https://wiki.physics.wisc.edu/garage/Active%20mechanical%20stablization%20of%20structures. The vertically shaken beaker is like a pendulum with its point of support moved harmonically up and down. The fluid has a resonance for each a standing gravity surface wave (exponentially damped with depth, and damped via viscosity).
