Abstract

Integrating multiscale structural functions in one device is of great significance in water collection. So a multiscale structured membrane is designed to achieve cycle between water directional collection on the micrometer-sized biomimetic beads and directional transport to the intersection of adjacent fibers, which endows the membrane with high efficiency and continuity in water collection.
