We report the facile fabrication of a functional nanoporous multilayer film with wettability that is reversibly tunable between superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity with UV/visible irradiation. Our approach controls surface roughness with an electrostatic self-assembly process and makes use of the photoresponsive molecular switching of fluorinated azobenzene molecules. Selective UV irradiation onto the nanostructured substrate was used to realize substrates with erasable and rewritable… CONTINUE READING
