A multi-functional polymer film with high hydrophobicity and transparency was formed by simple casting of a polycarbonate solution onto a substrate having micro-scale roughness. The high hydrophobicity was heat-resistant, which can be retained up to 390 °C. The polymer film may have potentially wide-ranging applications in industry and high technology.
