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

Abstract:

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.
