Extremely repellent surfaces: How tiny pillars affect condensation of vapor onto a surface

19 febrero 2015

A computational technique to analyze how water vapor condenses on a surface patterned with an array of tiny pillars has just been developed. Calculations carried out using this technique reveal that water droplets preferentially form either on top of the pillars or in the gaps between them, depending on factors such as the height and spacing of the pillars.
