Publication in Science Advances: Can solids wet surfaces?

Can solids wet surfaces? Controlling the self-assemby of complex nano-architecture made of single-crystal silicon. Wettability of surfaces affects several natural phenomena and plays a crucial role in practical applications such as printing, adhesion, lubrication, etc. Several thin-films made of organic and inorganic materials tend to break-up in small drops when processed at high temperatures, still…
