Contact angle hysteresis on rough hydrophobic surface
In this short note, we report a quantitative investigation of the hysteresis of the Cassie and Wenzel drops on a given rough surface. The Cassie drop shows much less hysteresis compared to a Wenzel drop and is therefore preferred in applications involving moving droplets. The experimental measurements are compared with the various theoretical models for the apparent contact angles and recommendations are made.
