Yes, there are a number of other studies on the switching of wetting behavior. One very popular method is switching by EWOD (electrowetting-on-dielectric). Refer to "Equilibrium behavior of sessile drops under surface tension, applied external fields, and material variations" by Shapiro and Kim. Another method is called optoelectrowetting, which does the same thing (lowers surface tension) using a laser. Refer to "PICO LITER DROPLET MANIPULATION BASED ON A NOVEL CONTINOUS OPTO-ELECTROWETTING MECHANISM" by Chiou and Wu.
