English abstract:
The wetting properties of surfaces, including the adhesion and
stiction (static friction) of liquid drops, are critical for processing
materials and post-production problems such as fouling. For the
novel but very active research field of 2D materials, the interaction
of liquids with one- or few-atom-thick matter and its support poses
new questions in our understanding of wetting. This paper
presents a brief overview of recent research in this area,
highlighting differences with materials of other dimensionalities,
and remaining issues.
