Droplet dynamics on superhydrophobic surfaces

Abstract:

Millions of years of evolution have led to a wealth of highly adapted functional surfaces in nature. Among the most fascinating are superhydrophobic surfaces which are highly water-repellent and shed drops very easily owing to their chemical hydrophobicity combined with micropatterning. Superhydrophobic materials have attracted a lot of attention due to their practical applications as ultra-low friction surfaces for ships and pipes, water harvesters, de-humidifiers and cooling systems. At...
