dc.description.abstractIn a few countries, such as Chile, a Raschel mesh is widely used in the field to collect fog. In this work, we explored the possibility of enhancing fog-collection efficiency of a typical Raschel mesh through surface modification and geometric changes. We demonstrated about 100% enhancement in the fog-collection efficiency.
