In this Letter, we present an intriguing Method for fabricating polymeric superhydrophobic surfaces by reactive-ion etching of holographically featured three-dimensional structures. Using the proposed strategy, we generated both lotus and gecko surfaces by Simply Controlling the incident angle of the laser beam during holographic lithography. The adhesion force of the gecko-state superhydrophobic surfaces was the highest yet reported for an artificial superhydrophobic surface. The well-controlled patterns enable an in-depth understanding of superhydrophobic and superadhesive surfaces. fit particular, the present observations provide direct evidence of a high adhesive force resulting from surface-localized wetting, which is quite different from previously suggested mechanisms.
