• Durable low ice adhesion foams modulated by submicron pores 

      Li, Tong; Zhuo, Yizhi; Håkonsen, Verner; He, Jianying; Zhang, Zhiliang (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Ice accretion is a severe challenge for both production and livelihood in cold regions. Previously reported high-performance icephobic surfaces by infusing lubricants are either temporarily icephobic, chemically unstable ...
    • Epidermal Gland Inspired Self-Repairing Slippery Lubricant-Infused Porous Coatings with Durable Low Ice Adhesion 

      Li, Tong; Zhuo, Yizhi; Håkonsen, Verner; Rønneberg, Sigrid; He, Jianying; Zhang, Zhiliang (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The limited durability of slippery lubricant-infused porous surfaces (SLIPS) restricts their practical applications. Inspired by the epidermal glands of skins, we developed a facile approach to durable SLIPS with gland-like ...
    • Self-deicing Electrolyte Hydrogel Surfaces with Pa-level Ice Adhesion and Durable Anti-freezing/frost Performance 

      Li, Tong; Ibáñez-Ibáñez, pablo; Håkonsen, Verner; Wu, Jianyang; Xu, Ke; Zhuo, Yizhi; Luo, Sihai; He, Jianying; Zhang, Zhiliang (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Despite the remarkable advances in mitigating ice formation and accretion, however, no engineered anti-icing surfaces today can durably prevent frost formation, droplet freezing and ice accretion in an economical and ...
    • Ultra-durable Icephobic Coating by Molecular pulley 

      Zhuo, Yizhi; Li, Tong; Wang, Feng; Håkonsen, Verner; Xiao, Senbo; He, Jianying; Zhang, Zhiliang (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Slide-ring crosslinked polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is designed and prepared for anti-icing/deicing application. Compared with the covalent crosslinks, the slidable crosslinks enhance the mobility of polymer networks and ...
    • Ultrafast self-healing and highly transparent coating with mechanically durable icephobicity 

      Zhuo, Yizhi; Xiao, Senbo; Håkonsen, Verner; Li, Tong; Wang, Feng; He, Jianying; Zhang, Zhiliang (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Excessive ice accretion on infrastructures can lead to severe damage and dysfunction. In the context of combating the build-up of unwanted icing and at the same time maintaining sunlight permeation, for instance on solar ...
