Soft Matter

Completed:

S1. Superhydrophobic macro-textures (see Gauthier et al. Nat. Commun. 2015)

S2. Bouncing Drops (see Carmigniani et al. Exp. Therm. Fluid Sci 2014)

Left: Drop impacting a superhydrophobic wire flush with a superhydrophobic plate.

Top Right: Drop recoiling off a superhydrophobic wire.

Top Left: Drop being split by a superhydrophobic wire. 

The hydrophobocity, impact velocity, and size of the drop delineate various regimes of behavior.
