23_38i/2011Superhydrophobic Materials: Overcoming The Water Vulnerability Of Electronic Devices: A Highly Water-Resistant ZnO Nanodevice With Multifunctionality (Adv. Mater. 38/2011)

Water-resistant electronic devices are developed based on superhydrophobic nanostructures. A ZnO resistive switching device is tested as a model system. As reported on page 4398 by Kijung Yong and co-workers, the application of superhydrophobic nanostructures on device surfaces efficiently blocks the direct contact of water with electronic components and the devices work even when water is poured on the surface of the device.
