Nanostructured surface mimics Namib desert beetle

Abstract:
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), US, have copied the structure of a beetle's wings to make surfaces with hydrophilic/superhydrophobic patterning. The artificial surfaces could have applications in water harvesting, controlled drug release, open-air microchannel devices and labs-on-a-chip.
