The movement of water drops on surfaces is an actual research topic. An understanding of the physical processes on such solid-liquid interfaces helps us to produce long-living, clean surfaces. In our division we focus on getting insights into the sliding of drops with the help of modern microscopical methods. These results lead to new concepts for modern self-cleaning surfaces.
