Silicon Micro-Islands And Nano-Spikes Channel Water On Glass Slides

Wednesday, April 1, 2009 - 13:28 in Physics & Chemistry

Working at the nanoscale level, engineering researchers have created stable superhydrophilic surfaces on a glass substrate. The surfaces, made of randomly placed and densely distributed micron-sized silicon islands with nano-sized spikes, allow water to quickly penetrate textures and spread over the surface.
