abstract

  • A multi-dimension bionic super-hydrophobic surface was prepared by embedding nano-silicaon on the sandblasted aluminum surface. After surface modification by perfluoroalkyltriethoxysilame, the surface shows the similar capability and structure of lotus leaves, the super-hydrophobic surface shows static contact angle as high as 173° and tilt angle as low as 2.5° for 6.5 μL water droplet.
