A new device has been developed for sequential production of mm-sized solid spherical shells using liquid-liquid gas systems. This device comprises a cylindrical vessel, for containing two kinds of immiscible liquids, and a gas injection orifice, set at the center of the vessel’s bottom. Solid spherical shells are successfully and sequentially produced by solidifying rising liquid spherical shells, formed sequentially at the horizontal interface between two immiscible liquids.
