Water pinning nanostructures inspired by nature

  In contrast, comparatively fewer reports are available on the design of water pinning surfaces. "Creating synthetic surfaces with water pinning property has broad technological implications ranging from dew collection as water source for residence in arid regions, anti-drip function for greenhouse films in agricultural countries, liquid transport and control in microfluidics and spectroscopy, and structural genomics as well as for the reduction of 'coffee-ring effect' in printing and coating technologies," Dr. Jaslyn Bee Khuan Law, a research scientist in the Patterning & Fabrication Group at Singapore's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (A*STAR IMRE), explains to Nanowerk.
