FEATURE PROJECT


ELECTROCHEMICAL APPROACH TO EVALUATE THE WETTABILITY OF ROUGH SURFACES

We present an electrochemical method for evaluating the wetted area under a droplet sitting on surface with mechanically induced roughness feature. The method takes advantage of the electrochemical double layer capacitance, which can be quantified using electrochemical approaches such as cyclic voltammetry.
