We present a novel process to create nanopatterns on planar and non-planar polymer replication tools, such as metallic molds for an injection molding. Such tools with nanopatterned cavities then allow affordable mass production of nanopatterned [...]
Er-doped TiO2 thin films(0~1.0 mol% Er) having a thickness of 400 to 1200 nm were spin coated onto FTO glass substrate by varying PVP concentration. The optical properties of thin films was examined by glancing [...]
The paper describes eco-friendly / green route for large scale synthesis of nanoparticulate additives such as calcium carbonate, iron oxide, barium sulphate etc. which as used for coating applications. The synthesis is carried out using [...]
With the progresses in material sciences, the generation of microscopic materials experiences an architectural evolution process from simple to complex. The complex interior structures will enable such materials a number of potential applications. Here we [...]

While past work has shown the ice-phobic potential of a superhydrophobic surface or noted the effect of surface area on ice adhesion to an array of microposts, questions still remain on the effect of a [...]
A new generation of materials possessing a wide range of possible consumer applications such as water harvesting, stain resistant self-cleaning and water-repellent breathable surfaces are being fabricated. Based on nature’s example of the stenocara beetle, [...]
An omniphobic coating that employs a dual hierarchical micro and nano surface structure was developed. This dual-size structured omniphobic coating was proven to be more durable than the commercial durable water repellant coating such as [...]

Hybrid Functional Surfaces were generated via the novel surface functionalization pathway named Surface Grown Layers (SgL),where the hybrid layers are generated in a single step at a fluid/solid interface via fine tuning of electrostatic complexation [...]
In this work it is shown that it is possible to model the spectral reflectances of tin doped indium oxide (ITO) and aluminium doped zinc oxide (AZO) Sol-Gel functional layers with different numbers of single [...]

Aqueous mixture of β-glucan, alginate and calcium form poly(γ-glutamic acid)(Ca-PGA) was compared with the traditional hydrogels cross-linking with calcium chloride and sodium form γ-PGA (Na-PGA). The suitable proportion by investigating the characters of swellability, pH [...]
The metal oxide nanoparticles include nano-sized zinc oxide, titanium oxide, iron oxide, zirconium oxide and cerium oxide, as well as mixed metal compounds, such as indium tin oxide, zirconium and titanium. For the color, paint [...]
