It is well known that the roughness of a hydrophobic solid enhances its hydrophobicity1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. The contact angle of water on such flat solids is typically of the order of 100 to 120°, but reaches values as high as 160 to 175° if they are rough3,4,5 or microtextured6,7,9,10. This result is remarkable because such behaviour cannot be generated by surface chemistry alone. Two distinct hypotheses are classically proposed to explain this effect. On one hand, roughness increases the… Expand
