The ability to control drops and their movements on phobic surfaces is important in printing or patterning, microfluidic devices, and water-repellent materials. These materials are always micro-/nanotextured, and a natural limitation of repellency occurs when drops are small enough (as in a dew) to get trapped in the texture. This leads to sticky Wenzel(More)
Calcium polyphosphate (CPP) bioceramic with different porosities were prepared by controlling the concentration of the pore-foaming agent. Effect of porosity (0%, 15%, 30%, 45% and 60%) on the microstructure, pores interconnection, dissolution behavior and compressive strength of CPP bioceramic were investigated. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and(More)
The controllable liquid transfer of a Chinese brush is attributable to the unique anisotropic multi-scale structures of the freshly emergent hairs. A large mass of liquid an be dynamically balanced within the brush as a cooperative effect of the Laplace pressure difference, the asymmetrical retention force, and gravity. Inspired by this, a device is(More)
Ion doping is one of the most important methods to modify the properties of bioceramics for better biodegrade abilities, biomechanical properties, and biocompatibilities. This paper presents a novel ion doping method applied in calcium polyphosphate (CPP)-based bioceramic scaffolds substituted by potassium and strontium ions (K/Sr) to form (K/Sr-CPP)(More)
Animal hairs are typical structured conical fibers ubiquitous in natural system that enable the manipulation of low viscosity liquid in a well-controlled manner, which serves as the fundamental structure in Chinese brush for ink delivery in a controllable manner. Here, drawing inspiration from these structure, we developed a dynamic electrochemical method(More)
We studied the in situ transition of the droplets' wetting state on the heated solid surfaces. The wetting behaviors of four micro- and nanostructured surfaces with different chemical components were studied. These parameters included the maximum contact areas (MCA), the maximum evaporation areas (MEA) and the wetting transition temperature (T(trans)). The(More)
In this work, the degradation kinetics of calcium polyphosphate bioceramic was studied. Liquid state P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) were used to characterize the product. The in vitro degradation test was carried out at 37 °C for up to 48 hours for both the simulation solution and the(More)
Hierarchical colloidal nanocrystal assemblies (CNAs) of ZnFe₂O₄ have been synthesized controllably by a solvothermal method. Hollow ZnFe₂O₄ spheres can be formed with the volume ratios of ethylene glycol to ethanol of 1:4 in the starting systems, while solid ZnFe₂O₄ CNAs are obtained by adjusting the volume proportion of ethylene glycol to ethanol from 1:2(More)
A novel biodegradable scaffold based on mimetic a natural bone tissue morphology with a porosity gradient structure was prepared in this paper. The result of surface morphology indicated that a graded porous structure was formed in the fabricated scaffold, where the dense layer (0%) was connected with the most porous layer (60%) by a middling porous layer(More)
Directional solution coating by the Chinese brush provides a facile approach to fabricate highly oriented polymer thin films by finely controlling the wetting and dewetting processes under directional stress. The biggest advantage of the Chinese brush over the normal western brush is the freshly emergent hairs used, whose unique tapered structure renders a(More)
