A micro/nanostructured (MN) surface induces a robust icephobic/anti-icing property, more than that of a nanostructured surface, and far more than that of a microstructured or smooth surface. A long delay time of more than 7000 s maintains the icephobicity/anti-icing on the MN-surface at a temperature of -10 °C.
