Dry adhesive surfaces based on high density, high aspect ratio, hierarchical polymeric nano-structures [thesis]

Audrey Yoke Yee Ho
Gecko's dry attachment system has been acknowledged to be the most efficient among all the biological attachment systems. This remarkable ability derives from the hierarchical and fibrillar structures on the gecko's foot which is composed of nearly v particularly, Dr. Yeo Lip Pin and Dr. Chen Xing, for their unconditional support and contributions to this thesis. My appreciation also goes to Dr. Wang ZhiYing, Mr. Ling Siang Hooi and Mr. Tan Jun Liang. Many thanks to Dr. Gao Han for his
