Abstract

In this thesis we describe electrowetting as a tool to manipulate liquid interfaces. In particular we showed that electrowetting can be used to achieve reversible transitions between Cassie-Baxter and Wenzel states. Applied electric field not only affects the equilibrium shape of a liquid interface, it also gives rise to electrokinetic effects of fluids near solid walls.
