Formation of Protrusive Micro/Nano Patterns atop Shape Memory Polymers

Article Preview

The surface morphology of materials is of fundamental importance to many applications (e.g., surface wetting, friction, surface roughness, reflection, drag, adhesion, etc). Various approaches for micro/nano patterning atop polymer surfaces have been proposed in recent years. However, a cost effective technique is still highly in demand. In this paper, we demonstrate a few novel but rather simple and generic approaches for surface micro/nano patterning using shape memory polymers (SMPs). Reversible micro vertical chains, crown shaped protrusion arrays and strip/labyrinth wrinkles atop SMPs are presented.
