Superhydrophobic Surfaces: Nanograssed Micropyramidal Architectures for Continuous Dropwise Condensation (Adv. Funct. Mater. 24/2011)
Abstract:A surface with nanograssed micropyramidal arrays that allows for enhanced drop nucleation and departure simultaneously is successfully developed by harnessing the hierarchical roughness and heterogeneous wetting.
