Anti-icing surfaces based on enhanced self-propelled jumping of condensed water microdroplets

Author affiliations

Abstract

A spontaneous and controllable removal of condensed microdroplets at high supersaturation via self-propelled jumping is achieved by introducing a designed micropore array on a nanostructured superhydrophobic surface. The fabricated surface was demonstrated to delay the ice formation for 1 hour at −15 °C with a supersaturation of 6.97.
