The effects of premature nucleation sites inherent on contacting surface can be eliminated either by superheating liquid droplet in an immiscible liquid of high boiling point or by heating the contacting surface with the test liquid rapidly so that the heat transfer to the liquid exceeds the latent heat of vaporization of the liquid (known as pulse heating method with fine platinum wires) as described by Skripov (1974).
