Title (EN) ULTRALYOPHOBE INTERFACES
(FR) INTERFACES ULTRALYOPHOBES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Ultralyophobe interfaces that are substantially inert to contaminants, thereby resulting in surfaces that are hydrophobic and/or lyophobic. The substrates include a substrate surface and have a bonding layer and a plurality of flexible fibers bound to the bonding layer. The flexible fibers have an elastic modulus and an aspect ratio, wherein as the elastic modulus of the fiber increases, the aspect ratio increases such that the flexible fibers bend upon contact of a liquid surface.
(FR)L'invention concerne des interfaces ultralyophobes sensiblement inertes pour des contaminants, constituant des surfaces hydrophobes et/ou lyophobes. Les substrats comprennent une surface de substrat, une couche de liaison et une pluralité de fibres flexibles liées à la couche de liaison. Ces fibres flexibles présentent un module d'élasticité et un rapport de forme tels que le rapport de forme augmente à mesure que le module d'élasticité de la fibre augmente, de sorte que les fibres flexibles se courbent au contact d'une surface liquide.
