Abstract Collecting water from dew, foggy wind or moisture present in the air recently has been recognized as a method to solve water shortage. In this paper, the directional fog harvesting ability of the pine needles is investigated. Results show that water droplets deposited on the surface of the pine needles can spontaneously move toward the root along the microchannel formed by the groove structure under the Laplace pressure generated by the shape gradient. This process is underpinned by the...

The superhydrophobicity of solid surfaces is primarily dependent on low surface energy and surface microstructure. In order to prepare a low-wetting surface, a micro-column array was constructed on the surface of aluminum by micro-milling and grinding, and the influence of the square-column structure on the surface wettability of the material was analyzed. Milling will cause burrs on the surface of the square column. Under the joint action of the square columns and the burrs on the surface, the ...
