Geometry- and Length Scale-Dependent Deformation and Recovery on Micro- and Nanopatterned Shape Memory Polymer Surfaces

Wei Li Lee, Hong Yee Low
2016 Scientific Reports  
The mechanical deformation via stretching and recovery of the surface texture are investigated as a function of length scales and shapes.  ...  In the recovery study, unlike a nearly complete recovery for the gratings after 10 transformation cycles, the high contribution of surface energy impedes the recovery of holes and pillars.  ...  Comparison of data including texture dimensions and water contact angles obtained from different surface patterns and levels of stretching were conducted using an unpaired two-tailed student's t -test.  ...
