A pillar microtexture, which has been intensively investigated in experiments, is chosen as a typical example and thermodynamically analyzed in detail. To gain a comprehensive insight into superhydrophobic behavior, the roles of pillar height, width and spacing (or roughness and solid fraction), intrinsic CA, drop size, and vibrational energy as well as… (More)
