Hydrophobic Structures

The example of hydrophobic structures demonstrates how models created by nature can be transformed into a technical solution.

A well known example for hydrophobic structures are the leafs of the Lotus flower. The water-repellent function on the leaf surface can be copied by using the processes of modern micro technology.

By using a hydrophobic structure the contact angle can be increased for about 20–25°.
