A research team from the University of Rochester have successfully used lasers in order to produce super-hydrophobic metals without the use of conventional temporary coating techniques.

Super-hydrophobic materials are desirable for a number of applications such as anti-icing, rust prevention and sanitation. However, currently available hydrophobic materials require the use of chemical coatings in order to give a material water repellent properties.
