In this work, MgO samples have been microstructured by laser treatment and surfaces with a controlled stripe design have been manufactured. Sessile drop wetting measurements were performed in a special heating microscope by determining horizontal contact angles as well as contact angles as a function of surface inclination angles. In a further step, voltage was applied to ground MgO surfaces and the wetting behavior was registered as a function of the voltage level. Activation energy analysis was conducted for all the experiments.
