Title : Role of various factors in Single Point Diamond Turning Machining (SPDT) to manufacture superhydrophobic surfaces


Superhydrophobic coatings (SHCs) are well known in the society and in different industries due to their self-cleaning characteristics. These coatings are used in multiple sectors including marines, automotive, optical devices, textiles, membranes for oil-water separation, drag reduction in microfluidics, sensors, the energy sector, and anti-corrosion coatings, batteries, anti-fouling coatings, and many others [1-4]. Though superhydrophopbic surfaces have attracted a lot of attention for their wonderful uses but practical applications of superhydrophobic surfaces in optical industries are restricted because achieving superhydrophobicity and transparency at the same time is a technical challenge. For this difficulty to be overcome, one of the most promising techniques available today is Single Point Diamond Turning Machining (SPDT), which can produce hierarchical micro/nano structures with surfaces that are extremely smooth and have roughness contained within a few nanometers. A tool's feed rate, tool nose radius, tool rake angle, and cutting speed all affects surface roughness. Some applications for SPDT include X-ray, semiconductor, and infrared optics. In this article, we reported the variables that impact surface roughness and surface superhydrophobicity.
