MIT researchers have now come up with a new class of hydrophobic ceramics that are highly hydrophobic, but are also durable in the face of extreme temperatures and rough treatment. The work, by mechanical engineering postdoc Gisele Azimi and Associate Professor Kripa Varanasi, along with two graduate students, Hyuk-Min Kwon and Adam Paxson, and another postdoc, Rajeev Dhiman is described this week in the journal Nature Materials. Durability has always been a challenge for hydrophobic materials, Varanasi says — a challenge he says his team has now solved. Read the full story here.
