Ultraglass ~ MIT's Nanotextured Functionality
Very compelling to read David Chandler's MIT News piece about the work on nanotexturing ultraglass by MIT team of Park, Choi, et al. Their ACS Nano paper describes Nanotextured Silica Surfaces with Robust Super-Hydrophobicity and Omnidirectional Broadband Super-Transmissivity. That's a remarkable combo of water resistance, clarity, anti-fogging, and self-cleaning qualities!
