I will discuss material hydrophobic and hydrophilic behavior via surface tension and how to amplify the effect of this surface tension by patterning the material’s surface. I will then describe a simple and elegant way of forming nanometer sharp surface features using glass that produces the world’s highest quality superhydrophobic behavior.
