A team of physicists at the University of Vermont discovered a fundamentally new way surfaces can get wet. Their study may allow scientists to create the thinnest films of liquid ever madeā€”and engineer a new class of surface coatings and lubricants just a few atoms thick. The team's research, published in the journal Physical Review Letters, was covered by range of tech and science news outlets including Interesting Engineering and Silicon Republic as well as locally by WCAX-TV.
