Photographs illustrating the contact angle obtained for different probe liquids: (a) ethylene glycol, (b) de-ionized water, (c) mercury, and (d) gallium deposited onto the selenium surface. The photographs are side view images where the thin black line indicates the profile of the contact surface between the probe liquid and the selenium. These contact angle measurements were carried out using the sessile drop method.
