Controlling droplet impact on different solid surfaces is an essential topic in developing diverse types of engineering surfaces. Slippery liquid infused porous surfaces (SLIPs) has recently been used in self-cleaning 1–3 and anti-icing surfaces . This paper introduces a new method to actively control the droplet impact on SLIPs surfaces using surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology. To do that, we designed and fabricated SLIPs on ZnO/Al thin film SAW devices. Our experimental results showed that by applying a SAW wave, the droplets' spreading, and retractions are altered, leading to a change in droplet impact regime.
