Laser-transformed metal repels water

Water often damages metals, causing rust, wear and decay. Thanks to an innovative laser process, however, metal is getting its revenge. University of Rochester scientists Chunlei Guo and Anatoliy Vorobyev have developed a technique using extremely precise laser patterns that renders metals superhydrophobic: in other words, incredibly water-repellent. Imagine a much more powerful Teflon —Continue reading “Laser-transformed metal repels water”
