A bioinspired hybrid membrane with wettability and topology anisotropy for highly efficient fog collection

Author affiliations

Abstract

Inspired by the asymmetric microgeometry of cactus spines and the alternate hydrophobic/hydrophilic micropattern of a desert beetle's back, we designed a hybrid membrane with asymmetric microtopology and anisotropic wettability that achieved highly efficient fog collection.
