Table 1 Contact angles of the nanostructured quartz

From: A simple and fast fabrication of a both self-cleanable and deep-UV antireflective quartz nanostructured surface

  Plain quartz A2 pattern A8 pattern A11 pattern
θadv (°) 119.0 ± 0.9 158.0 ± 1.4 157.4 ± 1.4 159.0 ± 1.0
θrec (°) 79.0 ± 2.5 145.0 ± 7.0 148.2 ± 3.8 147.0 ± 2.0
Hysteresis 40.0 13.0 9.2 12.0
  1. θadv, advancing water contact angle; θrec, receding water contact angle.
