Unidirectional water delivery on a superhydrophilic surface with two-dimensional asymmetrical wettability barriers

Author affiliations

Abstract

A superhydrophilic surface decorated with 2D hydrophobic water barriers is proven to be a potential platform for unidirectional liquid transport. Differing from the existing systems based on 3D micro-structures, this functional surface features a simplified structure and high adaptiveness that provide more possibilities for the development of fluid manipulating materials.
