Iridescence and superhydrophobicity combined on one surface

Friday, January 20, 2012 - 18:30 in Physics & Chemistry

( -- Scientists have combined two properties on a single piece of graphene oxide that don’t usually go together: iridescence (resulting in a rainbow-hued appearance) and superhydrophobicity (causing low-contact water droplets to strongly adhere to the surface). The engineered surface could have applications in liquid transportation and analysis, and due to graphene’s good electronic properties, possibly even in future electronic devices.
