20100112286SUPERHYDROPHOBIC SURFACES - Control and switching of liquid droplet states on artificially structured surfaces have applications in the field of microfluidics. The present work introduces the concept of using structured surfaces consisting of non-communicating (closed cell) roughness elements to prevent the transition of a droplet from the Cassie to the Wenzel state (which would result in the irreversible loss of the superhydrophobic non-wetting properties of the surface). The use of non-communicating roughness elements leads to a confinement of the medium under the droplet in its Cassie state. Transition to the Wenzel state on such surfaces many include expulsion of this confined medium, which offers increased resistance to the Wenzel transition unlike surfaces consisting of communicating (open cell) roughness elements. This enhances the robustness of the Cassie state and significantly minimizes the possibility of the Cassie-Wenzel transition under the influence of any external wetting pressure (pressure resulting from self weight of the droplet, dynamic pressure due to droplet impact on the surface, or electrowetting-induced pressure on the droplet). The resistance to the Cassie-Wenzel transition can be further increased by utilizing surfaces with nanostructured (instead of microstructured) non-communicating elements, since the resistance is inversely related to the dimension of the roughness element. The resistance of a surface to the Wenzel transition is measured in terms of the electrowetting (EW) voltage used to trigger this transition. Surfaces with noncommunicating roughness elements (closed cells) exhibited significantly higher voltages to trigger the Wenzel transition than corresponding surfaces with communicating roughness elements.05-06-2010
