Wetting Properties

Dynamics of the liquid contact line on a superhydrophobic surface and its impact on the adhesion

J. Teisseire- E. Barthel The context A solid surface is considered superhydrophobic if the contact angle of a water drop sitting on the surface is larger than 150°. It is commonly identified by (...)

Hysteresis measurements on Super-hydrophobic Surfaces with Periodic Textures

J. Teisseire - E. Barthel Surface textures are used to impart advanced wetting properties (such as superhydrophobicity) to surfaces. However understanding the surface response in relation to (...)
