Cicada wing with adhesive superhydrophobicity and their biomimetic fabrication

Abstract

Cicada is hymenoptera insect. It is found that cicada wing exhibit super-hydrophobicity and a high adhesive force with water, which is different from lotus leaf. The water contact angle (WCA) on cicada wing is 145.81±4.83°. The water droplet does not slide on the cicada wing surface when the surface is tilted at 90°. Observed from the… (More)
