Condensation mode determines the freezing of condensed water on solid surfaces

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of surfaces with the similar morphology but different surface free energy were fabricated to achieve surfaces with distinct condensation modes. It was found that the freezing of condensed water formed via filmwise condensation occurred much more quickly and at a higher temperature than that of condensed water formed via dropwise condensation.
