Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I am a student interested in wetting and super-hydrophobic surfaces. I am very new to this field and am a software engineer, and as such do not have strong mechanical or chemical background. I am trying to model contact angle and surface energy for super-hydrophobic surfaces. However my approach is a bit unconventional, I am trying to develop a system for using height-maps from SEM images and am trying to relate contact angle and surface energy to actual features on the microscopic landscape. I am a bit confused as to what the exact relationship is and am have difficulty finding peer-review resources related to this matter. Specifically regarding modeling the contact angle and surface energy from specific features on the surface.

PS: Are 3D extrapolations useful for microscopic and nano-scale images used in any ongoing research?

Regards,

Raazi
