Strong anti-ice ability of nanohairs over micro-ratchet structures

Nanohair surfaces on ratchet-tunable surfaces achieve an excellent anti-ice effect. Especially, the sample with a micro-structure (periods of ∼290 μm) and nanohairs (100 ± 30 nm in diameter) may achieve a longer freezing delay with a low temperature of −10 °C and reversible water repellency.
