Superhydrophobic surfaces (water contact angles higher than 150º) can only be achieved by a combination of hydrophobicity (low surface energy materials) with appropriate surface texture. In nature one can find an array of impressive and elegant examples of superhydrophobic surfaces. For example, on a lotus leaf rain drops bounce off after impact, then entirely roll off the lotus leaf and drag along any dirt particles, without leaving residues. The artificial design of superhydrophobic and self-cleaning surfaces has become an extremely active

"Droplet impact on superhydrophobic surfaces has been studied extensively due to its abundance and importance in natural and industrial phenomena. As superhydrophobic surfaces may lose their superhydrophobicity due to droplet impact in many applications, the robustness of the superhydrophobic surfaces is important. The superhydrophobicity of a surface is characterized by the surface chemistry and roughness. The liquid on a rough surface forms a liquid-air interface due to the existence of air inside the surface cavities. To have a robust superhydrophobic

The words hydro, phobic and philic are derived from Greek and they mean water, fear and adoration respectively. These words are being used to define the interaction of water and other materials. As an example, these words are being used in classification of liquids and solids based on their solubility in water, as well as classification of solid surfaces regarding to their wettability. A lot of surfaces in the nature have Superhydrophobic and self-cleaning properties. For example the wings of

This dissertation discusses the technology to reduce friction drag of water flow using superhydrophobic surfaces. Water drops show very diverse and interesting behavior when interacting with solid surfaces of different wettabilities. Depending on the texture of the underlying surface and the solid surface energy, the water drop may display states ranging from super-wetting (superhydrophilic) to near-perfect non-wetting (superhydrophobic). Superhydrophobicity, in particular, refers to a state that occurs on a textured surface, on which the liquid may not penetrate into the
