Technological applications of superhydrophobic coatings: Needs and challenges

This seminar topic is focused to study the technological applications of superhydrophobic coatings, which have so far been implemented in practice (like self-cleaning glass, automobile coatings etc.) , and to uncover the physics behind their performance, successful or otherwise. The seminar should then summarize the future developments required in synthesis and modification of these coatings and thin films, for other desirable applications of superhydrophobic materials and improving the existing ones.
