Abstract:
In this study, inspired by multiscale structures found in nature like lotus leaf we will try to make multiscale structures on polymer surfaces to make their surface superhydrophobe. We introduce a novel and effective method to make hierarchical structures on polymer surface. Also, we will investigate the effect of structure dimensions on wettability of polymer surface.
