The international scientific journal Applied Surface Science, features our work on laser surface texturing on the cover of the 1st of May 2019 issue. The paper entitled “Laser texturing of stainless steel under different processing atmospheres: From superhydrophilic to superhydrophobic surfaces” shows the results of an experimental work on the modification of the wettability of stainless steel surfaces from superhydrophilic to superhydrophobic using a one step process based on the use of a nanosecond pulsed laser. The capability to produce either superhydrophobic or superhydrophilic surfaces with a single tool can find an application in the generation of wettability patterns or gradients to enhance pool boiling heat transfer or to selectively promote/prevent the adhesion of cells/bacteria on implants and other biomedical devices.
