Title Biologically inspired omniphobic surfaces by reverse imprint lithography
Date 02.04.2014
Number 40987
Abstract Springtail skin morphology is translated into robust omniphobic polymer membranes by reverse imprint lithography. The combination of overhanging cross-sections and their arrangement in a self-supporting comblike pattern are crucial for mechanically stable coatings that can be even applied to curved surfaces.
