Abstract

The process for the fabrication of stable bionic superhydrophobic surfaces was described. It was observed that the immersion process leads to morphogenesis. The self-assembled flower-like aggregates grow on the copper surface depending upon the duration of immersion. It was shown that the morphogenesis method described is much simpler method for fabricating complex flowerlike aggregates as well as dendritic architectures.
