In this presentation, we will discuss some experimental results of self-assembly of particles on the surface of drops. The particle arrangement is accurately controlled for a broad range of particles of various types, sizes and shapes adsorbed on the drop surface. Solid glass particles are utilized and AC electric field is applied perpendicular to the interface. The movement of particles from pole to equator and equator to pole will be discussed. We show that the initial location of particles does not matter when they arrange on the pole or equator upon applying very low frequency fields. In the first case, initially, particles sit all over the surface; in the second and third case, particles are located more on the pole and equator, respectively. The behavior of particles suspended on the floating droplet will be analyzed at very low frequency.
