What is it about?

A surface could highly repel liquids based on its chemical composition and surface structure. This paper examines the effect of the surface structure shape on the liquid repellency of surfaces.

Why is it important?

Our findings help to select the appropriate design parameters when fabricating a hydrophobic surface for achieving higher water or liquid repellency.


We hope that this paper give an insight into micro-scale design of hydrophobic surfaces.
