In inkjet printing, this is curved surface of the ink at the outside of the nozzle when it is not being fired. The curve is due to a combination of the surface tension of the liquid and the difference in pressure between the liquid and the outside air. This tension stops ink dribbling out from a nozzle when it is not being fired. See Screen mesh, Surface Tension.
