Bioinspired Topological Skin

 

The energy and environmental crisis calls for green and sustainable technologies to address challenges both facing our daily life and in the aero, marine, and space industries. Fortunately, nature-inspired engineering provides us with unlimited resources. By mimicking nature, we developed a robust artificial skin that is multi-functionally integral, free of energy input and eco-friendly. We offer a multi-pronged solution to address many long-standing challenges with artificial skin, such as attaching it to a building surface for self-cleaning and radiation cooling, attaching it to aircraft surfaces for anti-wetting and anti-icing, and attaching it to marine structures and ships for anti-bioadhesion, anti-corrosion and drag reduction.
