Self-assembly of fluorocarbon-coated FePt nanoparticles for controlling structure and wettability of surfaces

Author affiliations

Abstract

Controlled self-assembly of fluorinated FePt nanoparticles from different solvent mixtures has been used to create superhydrophobic surfaces with varying topology and stickiness towards water. The ability to tune surface stickiness provides a means for fluid handling, as demonstrated by surface-to-surface transfer of water droplets.
