"Slippery liquid-infused porous surfaces (SLIPS) show remarkable liquid repellency, making them useful for many coating applications. The outstanding repellency of SLIPS comes from a lubricant layer stabilized within and at the surface of a porous template. The stability of this lubricant layer is key for SLIPS to exhibit their unique functionality. The lubricant layer, however, is depleted over time, causing degradation of surface properties. The formation of wetting ridges surrounding liquid droplets on the surface of SLIPS is one of the primary sources of lubricant depletion. Here, we present the fundamental understanding and characteristics of wetting ridges and highlight the latest developments that enable the suppression of wetting ridges formation on SLIPS. In addition, we offer our perspectives on new and exciting directions for SLIPS."
