What real advantages micro and nanostructuring has?
In nature there is the phenomenon of superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity:
These effects are favorable for many processes:
And in the case of micro and nanostructuring are going to get through physical changes in rugosity: height, width, spacing and shape of the motifs that are designed.
Through which technique you can achieve?
Traditionally it has worked in Silicon, but in ATRIA we know how to work with other materials:
